Description

Needed a new pincushion as mine vanished!

Well here it is, I’ve never been particularly good at fiddly sewing, and this was fiddly! Getting it neat in the apex was really hard.

The top part is felt as is the bottom piece, and it has red seed beads on the strawberry fabric.

      I just used normal polyester fluff, basically toy stuffing. I’ve seen people selling emery though, which sharpens your pins when you push them in. This pincushion is quite large though so would probably end up being more of a paperweight with emery in it!
