Ravioli for your embroidery

 
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!

  2. I know, I'm getting hungry too! It also makes me want to ask pinking shears for my birthday next month!

  3. Cute! I used to stick my needles in the couch too, until we got a leather one, now I can't.

  5. I love this- sometimes the simplest things are the most charming! This reminds me of cheery "zakka" style.

  6. That is adorable! I just made some new pincushions last week. :) Also, I try to be VERY careful with pins and needles because I don't want the kitties to get a hold of them (it's not above them to attack my pincushion and start pulling pins out with their teeth and jack rabbit kicking it). I actually have part of a sewing needle in my foot from when I stepped on it at age 10! I'm not even kidding! I had surgery and everything, but they were unable to remove it. So, be careful about sticking those suckers in your couch! ;) If you lived close, I'd let you borrow my pinking shears!
