I’ve heard of people using these tins to put together mini sewing kits, but I thought it would make a good place to quickly drop my straight pins as I remove them from my fabric when it feeds under the presser foot. I placed a business card style refrigerator magnet in the bottom and voila! I believe the word for this is “upcycling”. Green, frugal and useful.
Do you have a clever use for this kind of “trash”?
