Tin Can Sewing Caddy

I made a sewing caddy which includes a pin cushion that's pretty enough to be set on a shelf, yet comes in handy while I'm measuring and cutting out patterns. Made with used tin cans it's a quick, easy project.
Create a pin cushion out of a shallow tin can.
Pretty enough to be displayed
Hot glued the cans together and add a wire handle.
Drill a hole on opposite sides of the cans to place a wire handle

    I am new to this website and cruising through all the wonderful stuff! This is genius! I sew and embroider and am constantly laying down my stuff everywhere then I go searching for it in the middle of a project. I love this I can carry it around and keep everything tidy.
