Handmade Emery Pincushion / Pin Cushion - Large Felt Pea Pod - Three Peas in a Pod

This emery pincushion isn't just cute. It's practical too! It keeps your pins sharp and organized.

This pea pod is HUGE! The fourth photo shows this one in comparison to my regular pea pod seen here... http://www.etsy.com/listing/56426930/emery-pincushion-felt-peapod-three-peas .

Are you familiar with the little strawberry that comes along with the famous tomato pincushion? Do you know the purpose of that 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.

The four huge peas in this pincushion are filled with emery. There’s a muslin sack inside each one full of emery, nothing else.

My Emery Pincushions are always covered twice. This helps ensure that the emery doesn’t escape through the seams or pinholes made into the fabric.

Do you ever have trouble grasping a small pin from your pincushion when it’s hidden below your larger pins? These four peas could help you keep your pins and needles organized - easy to see and grasp just the one you‘re looking for. One pea for large needles, one for small needles, one for large pins and one for small pins. Your pins are organized and they’re sharpened with every jab. Perfect!

The pea pod is made from ecospun polyester felt made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.

No glue was used. It’s all hand-stitched.

The pea pod measures approximately 8 1/2 inches (21 cm) long by 2 inches (5 cm) wide and 1 1/4 inches (3.5 cm) high.

This pincushion was actually a custom request for a pea pod larger than the one I currently had. I'm continuing to make them because the size is just so fantastic. The long, rectangular shape is wonderful too. It fits perfectly right in front of your machine.

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.

Please check my shop for more Emery Pincushions and Pincushion Rings.


Thanks for looking!
