Handmade cute Australian echidna pure wool pincushion. A fun gift for sewer, gift for quilter or gift for crafter, unique gift for your friend or relative.
Pincushion is needle felted from pure wool. If you are unfamiliar with needle felting it is the craft of piercing tufts of raw wool hundreds of time using a very sharp needle with tiny barbs to sculpt various shapes and figures. Each piece takes many, many hours to complete.
Pincushion was inspired by my interactions with an echidna that came into care at the wildlife rehabilitation centre where I volunteered. He was malnourished but after a few months in care he recovered well and was released back into a national park near Perth.
This item is made to order, one of a kind and made just for you. Your pincushion therefore may vary slightly from the images shown.
Made from wool sourced from a New Zealand Corriedale sheep breed. The sheep are not mulesed and are very well cared for.
Approximately 13cm long, 7cm wide and 5cm in height.
Please note that pins are not supplied unless requested.
For multiple orders, processing time will be longer than estimated.
This pincushion is not suitable as a toy for children.
This little echidna is even more adorable in person! Was packed very carefully and shipped super fast too. I feel like the photos haven't done this little guy justice, he really is super cute, bigger than I thought and excellent quality. Friendly seller, and overall excellent experience, I won't hesitate to buy from you again. Thank you so much, my Mum is going to absolutely love this little guy (even though I'll be a bit sad to part with him because he is freaking adorable).
