This 4 1/2 inch tall contemporary pincushion is based on traditional Russian folk art. The artwork and pattern are my original design. She is filled from the neck down with crushed walnut shells which are great for keeping your pins and needles sharp. Her head is stuffed with polyester fiber fill. The thread and needle novelty fabric that makes up her body is 100% quilting weight cotton. And her flower embellishments are made of a bamboo and rayon blend felt, attached with glass beads. This is not a toy. This is not recommended for children.
