You know how a pin cushion gets in your way when you are sewing . . . well make a soda pop cover pin cushion and add a small piece of velcro to the underside and to a spot on the front of your sewing machine. Then as you sew and remove your needles from the fabric, stick your needle into your mini pin cushion which is off your sewing table surface and out of the way, then have a simple strap wristlet with another velcro spot and move your soda pop cover pin cushion with all your needles and stick it to your wristlet velcro and you've got your mini pincushion with you, ready to pin the next segment of your project.
Sounds intriguing. I'm not sure what a soda pop cover pin cushion is... Can you post a picture?
