I've been meaning to make one of these for a while, and I finally did it.
While I was about it, I made a small needle book that fits nicely under the pin cushion when not in use. It fits over the arm of the sofa in the family room and keeps the space tidy. Well, tidier than it was, anyway. I used the scrappy armrest pincushion tutorial from During Quiet Time , but I made a few changes. I didn't go scrappy--opting instead for some Joel Dewberry Aviary and solid grey and ochre. And I attached one of the pockets before I did the straight line quilting so that I'd have divided spaces for scissors and the like. The larger pocket on the other end holds my thimble, thread and magnifying clip-on glasses.
