Item details

I think this is my new all time favorite. It brings to mind some of my favorite memories. My grandma used to wear these pretty flower print day dresses. They weren't moo moos. They had a button on a wide strap and were worn from her days caring for her loved ones. These fabrics feel like her. They are bright and sunny and seem to be from linens fresh off the clothesline.

In honor of these lovely fabrics, I created a tomato pincushion, much like the red one she had with the strawberry attached. A pocket of emery sits on the sweet spot, ready to sharpen and clean your needles and pins. Each separate section is ready to organize your tools. A cheery frayed leaf is tucked under a bright button. The fabrics and buttons may vary depending on availability. All materials are of equal quality and cuteness. There is an emery core inside to sharpen and clean your pins during use. The emery is enclosed in muslin and surrounded by new polyester filberfill. All fabrics are new. 2 sweet decorative pins come with your pincushion, making this a wonderful gift for mom, grandma or favorite stitcher.

13 inches around, 4 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches plump.

Made to Order in similar fabrics to the pincushion shown above. Let me know if you would like specific colors for your pincushion. The last 2 photos show some different styles of fabric, rose and modern geometric prints. You can order a main color on the 1930's prints or we can do other fabric styles from modern to traditional. Just let me know what you would like and I'd be happy to make it!

Made to Order Ready in 7 to 14 days.

    This is so cute! One of those things I've been eyeing for a while and just hadn't pulled the trigger on. I still haven't decided which of the crafters in my life will get this one, but whoever does will love it I'm sure!
