Item details

It is said that much magic was created, in days gone by, with needle and thread. The quilt was the canvas for many a spell tucked into the stitches that put it all together. Found in a little thrift shop, these Avon demitasse sets were perfect to make lovely little pincushions that can hold your pins and needles while you are making fabric magic with your sewing. A standard demitasse cup is filled with a luscious velvet cushion and finished with a small pearl button. Each pincushion has a pair of embroidery scissors attached at the handle. Red from the roses and velvet cushion as well as gold from the cup and saucer trim makes a lovely gift for a friend, or for yourself.
