This emery pincushion is for the seamstress that enjoys her cup of latte! A handmade felt pin cushion filled with emery, shaped like a cup of latte.

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. 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 Latte Pincushion won't match the one pictured exactly, but it will be very close.

This pincushion is made from ecospun polyester felt made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.

Do you prefer coffee, hot chocolate or tea? Please check my shop to see those listed.

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.

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

Thanks for looking!
