Since not much sewing is involved and they're quick to make, you can use them for making a batch of gifts or for items needed for a charity stall or fundraiser event. How cute are these things!

A Tip on Making Felt or Fabric Pincushions
You shouldn't do this with toy play food for kids but for making actual pin cushions, you'll want to make the base of the item a bit heavier (less prone to sliding across a table and more sturdy and practical) by popping a suitably sized stone or pebble into the bottom and wrapping this in fabric or toy stuffing inside the design. This will just add some weight to your little cake and stop it from being knocked off a table too easily when you're grabbing pins in a hurry.
