Otherwise, tell me skin and/or eye color choices from the color charts, and/or if you want it bloodshot.

Custom Made by Jen Segrest since 2007.
The Original Eyeball Pincushion.

This is only for ONE eyeball pincushion made to order in your choice of size, skin and eye color and with option of bloodshot-ness.

Creep out your quilt club, gross out your fellow seamstresses!

This pincushion will look creep out everyone around you while it's sitting on your computer, desk, sewing machine or in your sewing box.

These little pincushions look great and fit anywhere, even those little sections in your embroidery floss box. Great for any sewing kit. Add a velcro dot to the bottom and to your sewing machine shelf for a convenient place to put you pins while sewing.

Having been making these a decade now I find one of these to be essential for sewing kit I have and others who have bought/made them as well agree! They are super handy and a simple way to always have your pins at hand.

Not only pretty, these are practical! With the recycled soda bottlecap base even your smallest pins and needles can't punch through and needles won't get lost. Each is densely packed with polyfil to be solid so your pins and needles won't loosen over time or fall out if you drop them. They stay in!

Also great for home sewing and tailoring the bottlecap inside helps you hold it tight without 'needle bites' as they fit in the crook between finger and thumb, keeping the rest of your hand open to turn and pin.


If you do not choose a color, you will receive Peach Chiffon skin with a blue eye and WILL NOT BE BLOODSHOT.

WANT BLOODSHOT? Unless you order a Zombie eye it will not be bloodshot unless you request it.

ZOMBIE eyes come with olive green skin, light yellow sclera, white pupil, black shading, and will be bloodshot and with skin viens. Iris will be red, but if you wish other colors are available by request.

HUMAN eyes have skin color and eye of your choice. Pupils are black, irises are not detailed in black. No viens, But bloodshot is available by request.

If you want it different iris color, in either case, say so in PERSONALIZATION. I will use a slightly darker/ighter, or matching shade to stitch the iris with. If you want a hazel eye tell me the inside and outside colors you want!

Otherwise you have the following choices in CUSTOMIZATION:

SKIN: CHOOSE (or tell me in PERSONALIZATION notes)
Peach Chiffon (default color if no skin choice is made)
ZOMBIE!!! (Olive)
Baby Pink
Walnut Brown
Cocoa Brown

Blue (default color if no eye choice is made)
ZOMBIE!!! (Bloodshot/Red)

SIZE: S, M or L
price will vary on your choice

I love my new pincushion! Such an upgrade from my old tomato. Really well made too. I can actually put pins away one-handed now.

I love my eyeball pin holder. Able to use with one hand without it flying off the table. Sturdy base, does not tip or roll. The detail is incredible. I purchased a blue eye and it's really cool. Everyone that comes into my sewing room picks it up and says "COOOOL!!" Thank you!

The perfect eyeball was delivered to my mailbox! A fantastic job was done on the iris embroidery to match my own grayish-blue eye color. Very pleased with this odd little pincushion.

Amazing shop owner!!! The owner kept me updated when my order was going to arrive later than expected due to high orders, which was amazing. I was also sent pictures of my ring before it was sent out. I love my pincushion ring so much. It’s comfortable around my finger, super creepy cute, and amazing quality!! Will definitely be buying from this shop again!!!
