My DH just walked in my sewing room and said “can I have a needle and black string so I can sew on a button” black string!?!  
came back in all proud he was able to sew it on, lol and he said “I even moved the button over a bit so they would be tighter on my waist”

LOL!!! Great! ;P 

There is no way I could ever see my DH try to sew anything. Love that your DH even moved the button over to change the fit!

Exactly!  We both had to twist she was fighting it so hard! 

I recently saw a youtube video about making a pincushion in an altoids tin using wool scraps.  Has anyone tried that?  really looked cute.

I've made an Altoids box covered with a crazy quilted top for a swap once, but I didn't use any wool.  Unfortunately it went away in the swap before i even thought to photograph it.  It contained little trinkets for crazy quilting, but it would have been fun to have the inside be a pincushion.

It would be fun to make one with wool.

I do think I saw that before, but it's been a long time.  That IS a very cute idea, with the coils.  

Seems like we got some kind of a tin box in our goodie bags in AZ one year.  The lids were decoupaged with little fabric pieces.  I know I have it in my sewing notions somewhere.  But it's just a tin -- not a pincushion, I don't think.  That would be a cute thing to use it for.
