I love hacks. Not the computer hack or bad worker meanings of the word, but more the Urban Dictionary definition - taking something meant for one thing and modifying it or repurposing it for another. I especially love quilt hacks.
This is a runner's armband (You're welcome, Medtronic). We got some as a promotional giveaway at a race my kids participated in a couple of years ago. It has a handy little zipper and pocket to keep your key, money or an MP3 player.
We don't really have an ongoing use for these bands and we have several so I took one and stuffed some poly fill in the pocket. Voilà - easy peasy wrist pincushion. :) The material is lightweight and stretchy, so it doesn't get sweat and it's easy to slide on and off.
And it sits nicely as a regular pincushion when I don't need it on my wrist. Win-win!
Have a fun hack like this to share? I thought I'd do a series on quilt hacks that I've either done or come across. I don't have any plans for this being a regularly timed series, but more as I come across them. If you have any that you'd recommend, let me know. I'd love to feature them!
