Here is a one of a kind hand crafted larger than usual pin cushion. It is a perfect gift for a quilter, seamstress or anyone who loves to do needle crafts. The pin cushion top is partially sand filled (to sharpen the pins) with decorator's sand and poly filled. The pretty fabric is hand embroidered and adorned with faceted crystal beads, embroidery and french knots. It is a nice sturdy pin holder for the avid sewer or can be used to display brooches on the dresser. This crab was a mid-century ashtray that I have up-cycled as the whimsical base for the pin cushion. The small ashtray insert has been removed. The crab is adorned with pretty floral fabric, a tulle bib that gives it a seaweed look and a button and rosette finial. It stands 3" tall, 5-1/4" wide, by 4" deep. The cushion itself is about 3" in diameter. It weighs 10 oz.
