Little House Japan Pincushion thimble ring


This listing is for one Little House Japan brand - pincushion. Please note that this listing is for the pincushion only and that the pins are not included. Please select the color and number of pincushions you would like using the pull - down menus.

Little house is known throughout Japan for creating exceptional sewing notions. These adorable pincushions are created out of thimbles with an attached adjustable ring. This allows you to easily place the pincushion on your finger so that your pins are easy to grab and use. These pincushions work wonderfully with the Little House glass-headed pins (shown in photos), little house applique pins or any short quilting pin.

The cushion part of the pincushion is created out of a cotton fabric.

**Please note that the fabric color and design changes depending on the lot that I receive**

The current lot of both the bright gold colored pincushion and antique brass colored pincushion features a sage green hued cotton with a floral pattern. The bright gold colored pincushion also has a small, cream colored bow.

The thimble is about 5/8 inch (1.6cm) tall

The ring portion of the pincushion is about .75 inch (1.9cm) diameter when closed all the way. The ring can be adjusted however if you have really small fingers it may be a little loose on some fingers. I wear a size 5 ring and the pincushion is a little too loose to wear on my ring-finger.

Made of Brass

I just had to purchase this precious ring pin cushion as I’ve never seen anything like it before. Leave it to the Japanese to come up with this. It’s great to use and to show. I bought it along with a batch of Japanese Embroidery supples (Sashiko) everything was perfect and shipped quickly in the most adorable, delicious, inviting to way which is why I stupidly forgot to take a picture of it wrapped which I still might try to recreate. For a photo. I’m so thrilled to have found this wonderful store.

Such a cute little pin cushion!

Just too cute! I must say that will enjoy using this little thimble pin cushion as I work with smaller projects, so only use 3-5 pins at a time on a project. This will allow me to work without the larger pin cushion. Nicely packaged and a timely shipment.
