large tomato pin cushion 70mm x 50mm

This large red tomato fabric pins and needles pin cushion has a deliberate shabby chic appearance. The little tomato, attached to the big tomato by a cord, contains an abrasive emery-type substance to keep your pins and needles nice and sharp. Approximate dimensions: 70mm x 50mm. Please note that red colour shade, size, and design can vary from illustration. We also sell a slightly smaller version of this popular pin cushion. This essential sewing aid is perfect for adding a splash of colour to your sewing box.  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. In the interests of safety, please keep this product away from babies and children due to small parts and choking hazard
