This is a handmade pincushion that cozily fits into a wood bowl. It's heavy enough to stay in one place but light enough to carry around and set anywhere you are starting your next project (I like hand-sewing on the couch). Whether you need it for beading or for machine sewing, this is perfect for any kind of needles you have. The stuffing fills the entire pot and accommodates even the longest hand-sewing needles. This particular one has less French knots and holds just as much as its sister cushion.
