Handmade wrist pincushion filled with emery.

Are you familiar with the little strawberry that comes along with the classic tomato pincushion? Do you know the purpose of that 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.

Now you can have an emery pincushion to keep your pins in top condition AND wear it on your wrist. So convenient and practical!

This pincushion measures approximately 2 3/4 inches (7 cm) by 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm).

It's covered in a fun, chocolate brown cotton fabric with orange and hot pink swirls.

Actually, it's covered twice. I wanted to be sure that the emery didn’t escape through the seams or through pinholes made into the fabric. I first made a little pillow filled with emery, then covered that with the print fabric.

The design placement is different for each pincushion. Yours may not match those in the photos exactly.

This pincushion is the same as the rectangular emery pincushions that I offer except that I added a polypropylene web strap. Now they're even more functional than before!

I added just one other thing to protect your arm from being poked with pins. There's a little something on the bottom side, inside the pincushion, to stop those pins from reaching your skin.

The removable strap secures with two D Rings. I have no trouble at all putting it on myself. Since you'll be putting it on your non-dominant arm, it's not difficult at all. It stays nice and snug too.

The strap will fit any wrist up to 8 1/2 inches. If your wrist is much smaller, you won't want a long tail hanging. I'd be happy to trim it to your size or you could do it yourself. Just trim and melt the edge by holding it close to a flame. It will just take seconds to achieve a custom fit.

The last picture shows sample wrist pincushions so you can see what they look like while worn. Those are NOT included in this listing.

Please check my shop if you'd like to see what emery looks like or if you'd like to purchase it to make your own Emery Pincushions.

I also have many Emery Pincushions, Pincushion Rings, and Wrist Pincushions to choose from. I hope you'll take a look.

Thanks for visiting!
