Keeping the Sand Contained

If you’re making pincushions and you’re using sand and you need something to hold the sand in order to pour into the pincushions, use a clean salad dressing container if you’ve got one. Any small empty carafe type jar will work really well, but the salad dressing ones have those neat little tops that you can flip open and closed. If you happen to knock the whole thing over you don’t end up with sand all over everything!
