Pincushion Purple Make-Do White Creamer Sewing Quilting Melmac Retro

Description

New purple pincushion, handmade in a white creamer from a 1960s melmac kitchen. Nine white buttons are clustered at one edge. Sewing should be fun, right?

The purple wool is a deep, heathery violet. The spouted creamer is marked Aztec Melamine Dinnerware., St Louis, MO. Each of the white textured buttons is different.

I stitch my cushions from many layers of clean, felted wool sweaters. When the cushion is dense, soft and firm, I secure it inside the cup. You will not see the stitching or the glue. There is no poly-fill or Styrofoam in there; each is hand stitched with only wool and wool-blend knits.

I am in love with 1960s melamine cups -- their kitchen colors contrast so well with my handmade pincushions. They are break-resistant, and the variety is endless. I call these my Melmac MakeDos and each is unique.

Cup height: 2" Overall height: 2.75"
Foot diameter: 2.5" Rim diameter: 3.75"
Width across spout and handle: 6"

The vintage creamer is in good condition and still shiny. There may be minor scratches but I see no stains or chips. Five sewing pins are included as shown.

Measurements are approximate. Made and stored in my non-smoking home.

Laurie's products are not only adorable and functional, but they are of the highest quality. I own an embroidery shop, so our pincushions get a ton of use. Laurie's pin cushions are perfect! Delivery is quick and her packaging adorbale. Love these items!

Sew perfect! Sew sweet! Sew colorful and happy!

Life is too short to confine yourself to mass produced, low quality pincushions when these hardworking charmers are available.

These 100% felted wool, tightly packed pincushions are perfect in every way.
