A mini history: 'Sweetheart' pin cushions were made in the First World War, often by convalescing and disabled soldiers as well as civilians to be given to their loved one. Many were given to sailors by their sweethearts to remind them of them on their long voyages at sea. They were covered in beads, ribbons, lace and fabric badges of the persons battalion, or sometimes a poem.
All prints slightly differ in intensity of colour due to the hand printed nature. Please be aware of this when purchasing. Image pictured is to illustrate the print.
This print will be backed and covered in cellophane to protect when posting.
