This Shabby Elegance Vintage Chic Walnut Emery Pincushion is a perfect sewing accessory to keep your pins sharp and dry and burr free. This is for one pincushion in the first picture. Walnut shell emery is the eco-sensitive alternative for the modern pincushion. Back in the day everyone had the famous "tomato" Pincushion that came with a tiny little strawberry that was filled with mineral called emery. Its purpose was to sharpen your pins and needles. You used the strawberry to sharpen and remove burrs from your needles.
Now in modern days, you can have that ability with the pincushion itself. You can keep your needles in the pincushion and the walnut shells are ground perfectly to provide enough roughness to keep your pins sharp, but not so fine as to leak through the pin holes.
This pincushion is filled with Walnut Emery. It measures 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" x 2"
