This listing is for 1 cup of crushed walnut shells. This is the filling I use in my wool pincushions. 1 cup should be enough to make four of my largest pincushions. Add 1/4 cup to the top of the cushions then pack them tight with polyfil. This gives you the perfect pincushion with just enough "crunch" at the top where you put your pins. Pack the rest of your cushion with polyfil fiber. You can adjust the amount of polyfil used to make it soft or hard to suit your personal taste.

Crushed walnut shells are eco-friendly and make a perfect filler besides keeping your pins sharp and clean, they are sometimes used for polishing rocks or metal and as a skin exfoliant.

I have them double bagged in ziplock bags. Don't forget to check out my pincushion pattern and my froggie beanbag pattern available in this Etsy store.

This item is heavy and the Etsy postage calculator does not give me enough freedom to calculate correctly for quantities larger than two. If you want to purchase multiple quantities, drop me a note before you purchase and I will adjust postage and the listing for you.
