I created this avocado pin in punch needle embroidery, which is essentially an ancient rug hooking technique on a smaller scale. I drew up the avocado on weaver's cloth and used my adjustable needle to create the pit. By slowly increasing the height of the needle, the pit becomes an incredibly realistic work of art. It's what makes punchneedle so special, and different from all other forms of embroidery!

NYC, where I live, is not known for its overly friendly commuters. I wear my own avocado on my coat, and am stopped daily by smiling people dying to know about this quirky, fun pin. This is my favorite and most popular piece in my whole shop! Get one for yourself!

Avocados are my very favorite!

It's double mounted on two layers of hand dyed felted wool, cream and deep dark purple, and a pin backing has been securely sewn onto the back.

The overall size is approximately 2 3/4" tall by 2 1/4" wide (at widest point). The punch needle portion is about 2 1/4" tall by 1 1/2" wide. This may vary just slightly as this is a made to order item and all are hand-drawn, no pattern is used.

*I have one Ready to Ship!!*

FYI:
Some elements may vary just slightly depending upon availability of products needed to create the piece. I endeavor to stick as closely to original as possible but sometimes thread shades will vary slightly - as most are hand dyed.

It will come wrapped up in pretty eco-friendly packaging all set for gift giving.

Look at all the fun ways you can celebrate the avocado:
