Item details

Aqua & purple strawberry emery pin sharpener/pin cushion with white seed beads.

These little pin and needle sharpeners in pinks and reds are a popular seller in my shop. One customer requested one in teals and purples to match a chatelaine that she had just had made for herself, and I just fell in love with the color combo. So I am now offering them in my shop as well.

• 1 ½” long (tiny!)
• Ribbon loop long enough to attach to scissors
• Made from new aqua fabric, purple felt, purple ribbon and white seed beads
• Filled with emery sand for sharpening pins and needles
• Two layers ensure that emery sand stays inside

My grandmother had one of those tomato pin cushions with a little strawberry dangling off it. I bet yours did too. I found out later that the little strawberry was more than just a pretty decoration – it was a pin sharpener!

This is my version of the old-fashioned favorite. My strawberries measure 1 1/2” – 1 3/4” long (not including the ribbon) so you can use it as the traditional pin and needle sharpener or as a tiny pin cushion. They are created from teal or turquoise cotton fabric, purple felt "greenery," a purple hanging ribbon, and white seed beads. They are stuffed with fine emery sand to keep your pins sharp and rust-free. Each strawberry has an inner layer of muslin to keep the emery from coming out the minute pin holes. The loop of ribbon is just long enough to fit around the strawberry for easy attachment to another item, like the handle of your scissors.

These strawberries would make a delightful gift for handy bridesmaids, your favorite sewing addict or just a guilty pleasure for yourself! The petite size makes it a great stocking stuffer.

Average review
This is so pretty packaged just like a chocolate dipped strawberry. Perfect emery sack to sharpen needles. This was a gift and she loved it. I liked it so much I almost kept it. But instead will order one for myself. Highly reccomend this shop & seller. Recieved very quickly.
