Custom-made PIN CUSHION with THIMBLE hat
as seen on Live with Kelly and Michael

Pin Cushion circumference: 45 inches
height: 6 inches
neck to tail: 15 inches
distance between arm holes 5 inches
chest: 21 inches

Jacket closes down the chest with velcro.
3" high thimble hat (3" diameter) has an elastic strap.

Please note that there are actually NINE pins (2 yellow, 2 green, 2 black, 1 each blue, orange and red) and two needles with yarn "thread." I have removed the pins for shipping. Arranging the pins and needles is quite easy: Inside the pin cushion, under the green felt is a small block of polystyrene. This holds the pins (made of painted wooden shish kebab skewers with painted styrofoam balls) securely in place. I have marked where they go.

The pin cushion is made of cotton and is stuffed with polystyrene (packing peanuts), making it very light. That is an extremely important consideration.

I made this original, one-of-a-kind costume in 2011 in my SMOKE-FREE HOME for my dog Macaroon to wear in local NYC contests. It placed second in our group at Tompkins Sq. Park's huge annual event and first among the 105 small dogs competing in the Carl Schurz Halloween Howl. I've made a new costume for this year's contests and so it's time for this one to go off to another dog and other contests -- just not in NYC. (Buyer must be a US resident but not a resident of NYC.)
