From the Blogger: "We all need pins to sew, and there is no end of ways to keep our pins handy. From elaborate pin cushions to DIY magnetic dishes, they all have their pros and cons. If you like the idea of a magnetic solution, give this recycling idea a try. Take an empty face cream jar, add a magnet and in about a minute - no lie - you've got yourself a solution that will keep your pins together and, more importantly, facing the right way so that you can grab them without stabbing yourself!"
