I created this avocado using the punch needle embroidery technique, which basically miniaturized rug hooking. 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!

Obsessed with avocados. Yes. Yes I am.

I wore this when I was featured on the Martha Stewart Show!

Each color from the brown of the pit, to the dark green, light green and buttery center all have special metallic floss with the regular embroidery floss for a fabulously fun quirky glitter effect.

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!

*I have one ready to ship!*

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

The overall size is approximately 2 1/2" tall by 1 1/2" wide (at widest point). The punch needle portion is about 1 3/4" tall by 1" wide. This may vary just slightly as this is a made to order item.

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.

This listing is for a smaller, sparkly version of one of my best sellers:

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:
