Item details

A handmade 'petal' pincushion, made from vintage fabric.

* One petal pincushion
* Handmade from vintage fabric, with vintage buttons
* All proceeds to charity


This petal pin cushion is handmade, with vintage floral cotton fabric.

Our pincushions are all handmade, firmly stuffed with polyfibre filling and are finished with vintage buttons on each side. There is a larger pincushion, and a mini one.

Really pretty and practical for you or a great gift for another sewer - sewers always need more pincushions!

The pins and needles shown are only for display purposes and are not included.
Each pincushion we sell is different and unrepeatable because of the vintage fabrics and buttons used.


* pincushion diameter is 10 cm / 4 inches

Shipping costs will be included with item listings; for some items shipping is included in the item cost, and we will usually ship worldwide.

We will mail to the address given in your Etsy order.

We will combine shipping where possible if you buy more than one item. Listing prices given for 'combined with' are only indicative of the maximum which could be charged; we cannot confirm combined shipping costs until we know which items you have bought. We only charge actual shipping costs, and will refund any overpayment over 0.50p.

Your item will normally be shipped by the person who made and/or donated it. We generally ship on weekdays.

Once your payment is cleared, we aim to ship within 5 business days (at most) of receiving payment, normally within 2-3 working days. Please see below on refunds and exchanges for further information.

Where shipping is from the UK, this is by Royal Mail and usually takes up to 7 working days worldwide outside Europe, and 5 working days within Europe. For deliveries within the UK we use second class for parcel size, first class for letter/large letter size - please let us know if you'd like to upgrade from second to first class.

Insurance is not normally included - please let us know if you would like to purchase insurance or tracking for your item.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.


We prefer payment via Paypal, as this carries the lowest charges so that more of your payment goes to charity. Please note that you can pay with your credit card through Paypal, even if you don't have a paypal account.

We do also accept direct Etsy payment if that is more convenient for you.

Payments should be made at time of purchase please or within 2 days, unless previously agreed. Please make sure your Paypal/Etsy delivery address is correct before you complete payment.

Your purchase may be cancelled by made4aid if you have not paid within 36 hours, unless you have made special arrangements and/or contacted us.

Additional return information
Because of the fund-raising nature of this project, we are not able to pay shipping costs on returns, but will refund the cost of the item (excluding shipping) once a returned item is received by us in the original condition and packaging. We cannot refund shipping costs.

Handmade items will often have irregularities or unevenness which are not flaws, but which are part of the nature and character - and charm! - of hand-made work.
Please note also that colours will look different on different monitors/devices.

Items do not come with insurance coverage and as such, if they become lost or damaged in transit then we cannot accept any responsibility. It may be possible to seek compensation up to £20 for lost items, depending on the country of origin for your item.

Please let us know if you wish to purchase additional insurance or would like your item sent with tracking / signed-for; there will be an additional cost for this.
