Vintage Patchwork Pear Shaped Pin Cushion featuring pieced wool men's suit pieces with hand embroidery and a Metal Folk Art Toile Hand Painted Base. These types of quilting designs are also called crazy quilt or crazy patch due to their random piecing.
Hand made in the 1960s, this unique pear shaped pin cushion will hold tons of pins, needles, safety pins, hat pins. Crazy quilters used scraps from men's old wool suits to make quilts, decorative items, pin cushions and satchels so nothing would go to waste back in the day when every penny counted.
Measures approximately 9 inches tall, including base.
In very good to excellent condition and ready to add to your pin cushion collection, to use in your sewing room or simply as a beautiful handmade decor piece.
If you have any questions, please convo us...we always respond promptly and love to hear from you.
The majority of the items in our shop are vintage, e.g., have been used. Vintage and antique items by their very nature have some wear, imperfections and signs of age and time. This is what gives them their character, charm and collectibility. Please examine our photos carefully for any flaws that we may have missed in our description. Our item photos are considered part of our description.
Thanks so much for stopping by our vintage store and we hope to see you again.
We mail packages within 1-2 days as long as you pay by PayPal or credit card. We ship USPS and include tracking on ALL U.S. packages. USPS Flat Rate Priority mail is normally what you will see as calculated shipping because you get your item faster, it is insured and includes tracking.

If you have a shipping preference, please convo us with a special request on shipping method, delivery confirmation, insurance, etc.
Everything is packed and shipped environmentally green and as carefully as possible, which means we use recycled boxes whenever we can, along with recycled bubble wrap, newspaper, or packing peanuts to protect fragile items.
