Needles, pins, and what to do with them - a DIY
Whenever I sew there are pins everywhere.
On the table, on the floor, in the fabric, under the sewing machine...
So far nobody stepped in one I forgot to pick up afterwards, but I am always nervous about the possibility.
Seeing that it hasn't rained here in about 5 months my skin is very dry and I go through a lot of cream.
I know that might sound rather random now, but bear with me, I am leading up to something :-).
This morning I had finished yet another pot of cream and just when I was about to chuck it into the rubbish I
remembered something I saw some time ago on a German blog (please let me know if it was yours so I can give
Empty pot + magnet = no more pins on the floor!
You will need:
an empty pot or tin
some paper or fabric to decorate
Cut the paper to size and glue it on with double-sided tape. Then glue the magnet to the inside of the lid. I also used
double-sided tape for that.
I then still stamped 'pins' and 'needles' on it to make it clear to little people that it is not meant for the earring or sticker
Quick and easy!
Lots of love,
