My favorite pincushions are the magnetic ones.  Red Brolly shows how you can make this handy magnetic needlekeep.  Keep it near you while you’re sewing to hold the needles and pins you need for the project.  It’s a quick project, one you can complete in just 30 minutes. A giant fabric covered button makes the base.  They’re pretty just left plain, or you can embellish the edges with scraps of fancy trims.  This would make a great gift for a sewy friend!

    Love this idea, can you tell if there is any truth in ” One should not leave a magnetic Pinkeep near a computerised sewing machine.”

      I am not an expert, but I would think it would depend on how strong a magnet and how close to the machine. If you’re worried, I’d ask at your sewing machine dealer. –Anne
