This pincushion is sooooo fun! It is big and plump and adorable. A modern take on big, juicy apple makes this sewing tool extra fun. In fact, this pincushion would look great as desk art, kitchen kitsch and even a photo prop. But, as a sewer and quilter, I designed this pincushion to work hard and look great doing it!
I adorned each seam with a fun feather stitch in bright red embroidery floss. It has a bright green leaf with embroidered details. I crafted the stem from paper covered wire so it is posable. Two bold, bead topped pins come with this pincushion.
It has an emery core which keeps it firmly planted on your work surface. Turn it over and use the emery to sharpen and clean your pins and needles.
4 1/2 inches across. 14 inches around and 2 1/2 inches high, with a 4 inch stem.
All in-stock items will be shipped within 1-3 from your order. The exception is for orders paid for with checks or e-checks. Those orders will ship once the bank or PayPal notifies me of a completed transaction or I receive your check in house.
Most items are shipped by the United States Postal Service. Please let me know if you have any other shipping preference. I use Etsy's shipping service which applies actual shipping charges to your order. There may be a handling charge to cover a portion of the cost of boxes, bubble envelopes and shipping supplies. Next, Same Day or 2nd-Day shipments must be requested at the time of your order. They normally carry additional shipping charges. The difference between standard and rush charges must be paid for prior to shipment.
Note: Costs for International shipments may be well over the estimated shipping while some may be less. In order to be fair in both situations, any actual shipping charge $2 over or under the estimated shipping will require an adjustment in your order total. I will contact you prior to shipment to make further arrangements when necessary. You may request DHL or other shipping services by using PayPal. Just let me know when you order. All other packages are shipped by USPS.
I will add insurance to orders over $150 at no charge to you.
I accept PayPal and Credit Card orders, Fiberluscious and Etsy Gift Certificates as well as payment by check. I will let you know when your check arrives. (Work cannot begin on your check order until your check is received in-house.)
New Coupon Code Policy (Jan 30, 2017). You must use your coupon code when you check out.

Made-to-Order and Custom Orders- Because I desire to meet the expectations and the imagination of each customer's unique creative vision, it takes a certain amount of time to fill each order. I do not rush orders through, cut corners or skimp on the time it takes to create a quality item.
Please note: I may have orders to complete before your item is started. I will be happy to estimate a shipping date for you. Let me know if you need your item by a specific date, (such as a birthday). I will try my hardest to ship in time.
Work on your reserved listing, (custom order) will not begin before payment is made. If payment is not made, I will contact you for further instructions.
If you are purchasing an item as pictured with a minor change, your order will ship as soon as it is finished. If we are making an original item just for you, let me know if you would like approve a photo of your item before it ships. I want you to be happy!
To be fair to all, I begin work on items in the order they are purchased. Very involved or multiple items may take from 2 to 4 weeks. Some items can ship within days. Some delays are caused when other orders come in before your order does. I work on orders as they are received. Please let me know if you have a deadline for delivery. I look forward to working with you!
