This is no ordinary tomato pincushion! This is one serious Monster pincushion!
This Monster cushion was hand-knitted with two strands of wool yarn: one strand of ivory, and another strand that alternated between red, orange, lime/chartreuse and blue. Then it was wet-felted to give it that...well, monster look. The fringe looked so cool that I let it hang out rather than tuck the tentacles inside the cushion as a knitter would "normally" do. Assuming a normal knitter would make such a thing in the first place. I have a lot of fun, that's for sure.
Big honkin' red button on the front has three little chartreuse beads on it. The button on the back is red too, but smaller.
Removable 3" long pinsies (beaded pins) have red glass beads, more chartreuse beads (like the 3 on the big button), and white seashell chips. Very nice finishing touch.
This will make an humorous gift for you or a friend, serving as a reminder to not sweat the details in the sewing studio.
The cushion is generously filled with 100% non-allergenic Silky Soft Ultra Touch polyester fiberfill by Fairfield. (Cheap polyfill doesn't feel nearly as nice. I don't use it. This is the good stuff.)
Pincushion is 1.75" high (not including the pinsies), 5.5" wide, and 4.75" top to bottom. It's just a little bigger than my other wool pincushions, but the felted fringe tentacles give it much more presence.
Satisfaction guaranteed. If you're not happy, just return it for a cheerful refund. I really love this one.
