When I’m sewing a seam that I’ve pinned in place, I tend to just pile the pins I’ve removed right in front of the machine. Why? Because I’m lazy, that’s why. Putting them anywhere else is wasted hand movement. Autie from iCandy Handmade shows how to make a pincushion for lazy girls like myself. She calls it The Preferred pincushion. Iit has straps to attach it to your sewing machine, so you always have a pincushion right at the most convenient spot. Go to iCandy Handmade for the tutorial.
