This handsome pincushion is made of felted wool featuring a pinwheel pattern alternating between light brown and dark brown and black tweed felted wool. The stripes are joined in the middle with a unique carved-looking vintage button on the top and a circle of felted wool on the bottom. Each section of the pinwheel is accented with light brown pearl cotton cords. It is a solid pincushion packed tightly with crushed walnut shell filling to keep pins and needles clean and sharp. This primitive pincushion would make a lovely addition to your notions basket or even make an excellent gift for a quilter or hand-crafter.
Size:4" round, 2.5" high Weight: approximately 9-10 0z. (weights vary slightly, as each pincushion is hand-made)
