I try to be careful with my embroidery needles and not place them thoughtlessly on tables, in the couch (yes, you read that right, I stick my needles in the couch) etc., especially with two kids in the house. But often I am frantically searching for a needle not sure where I've put it or what happened to it. So I made myself an embroidery needle cushion ravioli style. As you can tell from the photo it was very crudely made but it works for me! It's just a small square piece of felt, a scrap of fabric and some poly filling. Now I only need to remember to put my needle into the ravioli cushion during breaks. :)
p.s. I wish I had pinking shears to make my little cushion look even more like ravioli!
