Block printed fabric Sweetheart Pin Cushion.

I've produced a modern day sweetheart pin cushion, just for you. I've even left a small circle on the back for you to sew your loved ones initials.

The design has been linocut and then hand block printed using oil based (colour fast) inks onto a light cream cotton sateen fabric. The front design has three colours, and the back just the one colour. It is stuffed with a hollowfibre filling, which complies with fire safety regulations.

Cushion measures: 18cm x 16cm at its widest points.

You are purchasing one sweetheart pin cushion.

Due to the hand printed nature of these items, the images above are to illustrate, as all have their own little quirks!

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.

Not suitable for children or babies. This item is designed to be a decorative art piece. Though if you are a practical soul, it can be used as a pin cushion!
