When making these pincushions, I use wool, which has natural lanolin and keeps my pins and needles rust free. Then I add crushed walnut shells to the top so that it has a nice “crunch” and sharpens my pins and needles with each use. The Polyfil fiber which is stuffed in tight at the bottom gives these pincushions the perfect density. They’re not too tight and not too loose. I have crushed walnut shells for sale on Etsy too.
