This handmade pumpkin pincushion is for the seamstress that enjoys Autumn - Halloween, Thanksgiving, and all that the season has to offer.

The pumpkin is made of bright orange fleece and stuffed with polyester fiber-fill. The stem is made of bright green fleece and filled with emery to keep your pins sharp.

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.

Instead of the tomato and strawberry, how about a pumpkin with an emery stem?!

This pumpkin measures approximately 3.75 inches (9.53 cm) across, 11.5 inches (29 cm) around and 2.5 to 2.75 inches (7 cm) high. The stem is another 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) high. The scissors and spools are pictured to help you get an idea of the size.

The emery is enclosed in its own little casing inside the fleece to be sure that no emery escapes through pinholes.

As always, no glue was used in this pincushion's construction.

I love this pincushion! It’s huge so you have plenty of room for all of your pins and needles. The emery stem is a bonus to keep those pins sharpened with every jab. It's cute too! What more could you want from a pincushion?

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.

Your pincushion won't match those pictured exactly. They all look very much alike, but will differ slightly.

Please check my shop for other fun emery pincushions.


Thanks for looking!
