Temari is the ancient Japanese folk art of silk embroidered thread balls, originally made by noble women from silken threads pulled from old kimonos. Used originally hundreds of years ago for child's play, today the art of temari is becoming more regarded around the world.
I am passionate about bringing together modern color schemes, unique designs, and precise stitching details into my art. I hand-wrap each ball first with yarn, then thread, then stitch my own modern version of the traditional Japanese designs with silky cotton embroidery threads.
Perfect as a gift for your favorite seamstress, quilter, or crafter, this temari pincushion is firm enough for all pins, needles and sewing odds and ends. Wrapped primarily in yarn and thread, my temari pincushion provides a safe and secure place for all your sewing needs.
Shipped first class in a unique gift basket along with a brief history of the craft. Please note, this teacup's handle is very fragile and has some repaired damage. It will work beautifully for a pincushion, however!
