(Although, for some reason I can remember any song lyric that was ever

    Sewing tutorial: Strawberry Mini Pin Cushions One problem I have while hand sewing are the pins.  I mean, sure there is that little tomoto where pins can go, but a lot of times I'll wander off with my pinned project, I'll be cutting, and sewing, and I don't want a loose tomoto.  I saw these mini strawberries (and the tutorial here) you can attach to your tools to solve this little problem. These also help identify which tool belongs to you in a group of sewers.

My first idea was a pinecone because they naturally
