This lovely pincushion is sewn from Momo's Odyssea 100% cotton fabric in the Floral Vine print. It is attached to a small terracotta pot once used in the production of Saint Marcellin cheese in the Rhône-Alpes region of France.

Flat-bottomed pincushions are a boon to the modern sewist, as they do not roll! Your needles and safety pins can be separated into one or more of the sections. Isn't it time you had something beautiful for your sewing table?

All pincushions are packaged in a handmade origami paper box (see the last photo for examples). If you are giving your pincushion as a gift, just let me know and I will tie it with a lovely ribbon. The pearl-head pins are included.

[Or you may purchase handmade flower pins for $4. Please convo me for a custom listing. Flower pins can be made flat or curved.
Curved flower pins can be seen here:
Flat flower pins can be seen here:

All of my items are handmade in my New York City home. I love custom orders and can create a similar pincushion from any of the fabrics I have in stock. Please convo for a picture of my current fabric inventory.

Thank you for supporting handmade!
