Are you familiar with the little strawberry that comes along with the classic tomato? Do you know the purpose of the strawberry? It's an emery pincushion. Its purpose is to keep your pins and needles sharp. It’s filled with a mineral called "emery". Emery resembles fine metal shavings. It’s used as an abrasive in industrial applications and on things like emery boards.
We can all purchase the tiny strawberry, but wouldn’t you like a larger emery pincushion? A huge emery pincushion? I hope so because here it is!
This felt cup measures approximately 3 inches (7.62 cm) across at the mouth and 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) high.
It’s full of emery. I didn’t add any fiberfill or any other type of filler. It’s pure emery, tightly packed to keep those pins and needles sharp. You can stick your pins in the side of the cup as well as in the top. As with all of my pincushions, no glue is used. Your pins will receive the most benefit due to its construction.
The emery is enclosed in its own little casing inside the felt to be sure that no emery escapes through pinholes.
I love this pincushion! It’s very heavy so it won't slide around your work surface, it holds your pins and needles, they're sharpened with every jab, and it's cute. It's even personalized. What more could you want from a pincushion?
The letter is hand embroidered with black thread. The flower is blue with green leaves. The letters are taken from a vintage embroidery pattern.

Just leave the letter of your choice in the "message to seller" when checking out. Are you a lefty? If so, let me know that too in your message to seller. I'll embroider the letter on the opposite side of the cup for you. Would you prefer that I use different colored embroidery thread for your letter? Just contact me and we can discuss the details.
The fifth picture shows what emery looks like. If you'd like to purchase just the emery to make your own pincushions, please check my shop to see it listed.
This listing is for one pincushion. If you would like to purchase more than one, just contact me.

Please check my shop for other fun emery pincushions.
International shipping may look high to you on this item. That's because of the weight. Each cup weighs approximately 8 oz.
