If you sew or make your own clothes then there is one vital piece of equipment that you need. A useful sewing aid that will make your life easier.
Apart from the needle and the thimble there is the pincushion.
Now almost every child that takes sewing lessons makes a little padded pad with fancy decoration and tassels and designs that can be used to hold pins and needles.
There is nothing wrong with this but as you grow older it would be nice to have something that reflected your style and character – plus was practical.
You can find many types of pincushion from houses to animals like pigs and chickens and on to more classical decorated pads.
Whatever you choose get something that you will like to look at every time you reach for your sewing box
