Keeping your pins organized in a dedicated cushion or dish is the best way to avoid getting one in the foot, or in the derriere (if you happen sew on the couch)! Pin cushions are also a great way to make something that is ridiculously cute and functional at the same time.

Take a look at this roundup of projects to inspire you to make some practical and pretty things! These are also a great handmade gift idea.

The links below the photos will take you back to the original site where I found these projects. Most include a tutorial and patterns, while others are items for sale.
