a little quilting, reading, and an occasional cookie

Does anyone know a good stuffing to use for pincushions? I've looked it up and there are many thoughts. Some say don't use the polyfiber 'stuffing' but to use walnut. Well, that can be very expensive. Some say sand works well. I'm looking at doing some pincushions and want the stuffability and flexability of the poly filling. I want to really squeeze and jam the cushion into the receptacle on some things I have. Is it so wrong to use it? Sand would be the easiest and most cost effective thing. Is sand ok? I am imagining making two pieces though, one to hold the sand and then the cover. How far off am I?
