This over-sized two toned wool pincushion is made of white and red felted wool sewn in an alternating pattern and where all points join at the top, it is embellished with a big white button sewn on with a big X using red and white pearl cotton thread. The same button is on the bottom and so this pincushion can be used on either side. Its seams are embellished with twisted red and white pearl cotton cording to give it a bit of a candy-cane effect. It is a bright and cheerful pincushion and may be used for pins or simple decoration. it is stuffed with crushed walnut shell filling which makes for a weighted pincushion that will plant itself nicely where ever you want it. Crushed walnut shell filling is said to keep pins and needles clean and sharp. This pincushion would make a lovely gift or buy it for yourself! It is a practical gift for the sewer or quilter in your life.
