I got really cute pincushions from my mom's student in her sewing class! She made many of these for us and her classmates. A plastic bottle cap is used for the base, and Chilimen fabric is used for the cushion. (Chilimen is one of Japanese traditional fabric and often used for Kimono.) When I was taking pictures of these, a good (or maybe silly) idea came into my mind. The photo on the bottom, that is it! It's a pincushion ring! Funny? The part of the ring is just a elastic tape. I tired it on anyway but it didn't disturb hand work so much. I think it's useful. You want one?
