*Item is SOLD! Thanks so much. I'm happy to offer you a primly aged velvet heart shaped pin cushion with a sprig of appliqued wool flowers with embroidered stitches to brighten up your sewing basket, or simply display in a primitive bowl. It is made in the tradition of seamstresses of centuries past when keeping pins tidy and safe was of utmost importance. Pincushions were often exchanged between friends. The velvet has been aged to mimic the wear that sharp pins will create after years of taking them in and out. Surrounding the entire outside of the heart is a row of embroidered stitches as embellishment. The pincushion has been firmly stuffed with wool and cotton. The bottom of the pin cushion is made from a wonderful 1800's reproduction cotton print fabric. I think it is particularly nice and in keeping with the time period. Please scroll through the photos to view all the details. All visible stitching is done by my hand. My selling price includes shipping. I'm kindly asking $35.00.
