Weighted Pincushion Organizer

I have wanted one of these ever since I saw them at the Sierra Vista quilt show. The ones they were selling were different, but I like this one better. I found the tutorial to make this at . This is actually for my mom for Mother's Day so the next one will be mine! Here are the changes that I made...

I thought the original pincushion looked too long and skinny so I shortened it by about 2 inches. I also had to make the weight bag smaller to match the shorter pincushion.
I used flannel instead of felt in the middle of the bag.
I am going to add something later today--I am going to sew a square of that rubber non-adhesive shelf liner to the bottom of this to keep it from slipping. My friend Roxanne has one of these and she suggested the idea to keep it from sliding around.
I think I will make one other change on my next one...I will add fusible interfacing to the scrap bag to make it a little bit more stiff.

If anyone wants the dimensions for the pincushion pieces that I shortened, leave a comment and I will post them.
