I recently purchased a colorful and unique antique quilt. I believe it was made in the 1930's. I knew that this quilt needed some repair, but bought it anyway. When I got it home and examined it more closely, realized it was beyond repair. I could not bring myself to discard this obviously much loved and very old quilt. Since I could only get small sections that were useable... I thought I could keep this very old quilt alive by making these simple, colorful and practical little pincushions.

I use 1/4 of a cup of emery grit in each pincushion. The emery has it's own little muslin pouch inside. I wanted to insure that this very fine, heavy sand would not find it's way out of the pincushion. When you stick your needle into the pincushion, the emery will clean and keep your needles and pins clean & sharp. Which makes your work fast and smooth. There also is some fiber fill to make this little guy, nice and full. He has felt eyes, button eyes, embroidery floss for whiskers, and a cording for his tail.

Not too big...Not too small
Size is about 2.75" wide x 4.5" long (not including tail)

***Please keep in mind....the quilt used was at least 80 years old. It is not perfect. There is fading and some repairs done to this old quilt. I believe these characteristics add to the charm of this little guy.
