No, this isn't some kind of "keep your eye on the rock" trick. Haha. I'm making pin cushions with little Nantucket baskets and they needed some weight. So here's my solution: rocks wrapped in cotton batting strips (so they don't jiggle around like there's some kind of a rock in there). This will be glued to the bottom, then the squishy business part of the pin cushion will be sewn or glued to that. I'll show you how they come out. Cute baskets, don't you think?
