The manly pincushion?

My son was inspired to make his very own wrist pincushion after seeing mine.  I suggested, and he heartily agreed, that something a little less feminine would be a good idea.  He wanted to make his in a tweed and there was a bit leftover in the scrap basket.  A nice cube seemed more appropriate for a man as well ….. and a few instructions, stitches and glue later and here we have it….

Another great feature is that the strap is metal so if you have a magnetic scissor holder your pincushion even has a great home when not in use!
