This handmade emery pincushion is for the seamstress that enjoys her hot beverage!

It's made from layers of orange felt giving it great body, then covered in a cute cotton fabric featuring orange, pink and green owls and flowers.

I didn't yet sew down the piece of felt that represents the drink. You choose which one you'd like - hot tea, coffee/hot chocolate or latte. Just let me know in your message to seller at checkout. I'll need just a day or two to complete your pincushion.

I didn't sew the bottom on either. I need to sew the top on before that last step, so your cup will have stitching around the bottom that isn't in the photo.

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. As with all of my pincushions, no glue is used. It's all hand-stitched. Your pins will receive the most benefit due to the pincushion's 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. What more could you want from a pincushion?

Your pincushion may not match the one in the photos exactly. The fabric design placement is different on each one.

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.

Please check my shop for other hot beverage Emery Pincushions.

International shipping may look high to you on this item. That's because of the weight. Each cup weighs approximately 8 oz.

The design for this pincushion is slightly altered from a pattern byumecrafts.etsy.com.

Thanks for looking!
