small red tomato fabric pin cushion 40mm x 30mm

This small poppy red tomato fabric pins and needles pin cushion has a deliberate shabby chic appearance. The baby tomato, attached to the larger tomato by a cord, contains an abrasive emery-type substance to keep your pins and needles nice and sharp. Please note that red colour shade, size, and design can vary from illustration. Approximate dimensions: 40mm x 30mm (4cm x 3cm). We also sell a slightly larger version of this popular pin cushion. This essential sewing aid will also add a splash of colour to your sewing box.  In the interests of safety, please keep this product away from babies and children due to the small attachment/choking hazard. Historical Note: the classic red tomato pin cushions have been around since Tudor times when they were filled with sawdust because the fruit was believed to be lucky and may ward off evil spirits. In later times, pin cushions in fruit and vegetable shapes became extremely popular and the red tomato pin cushion has remained a useful tool for dressmakers around the world
