Once you fall into the Etsy trap...

How much do I want this pincushion?

Ooh, or this one shaped like a pear!

So ridiculously adorable. Also would solve the problem of continually losing my pincushion among all the other tomato pincushions. I wonder why the tomato became the accepted standard?


  1. Those are so cute! I love my mom's vintage strawberry pincushion. Seeing it makes me want to sew! (Thanks for leaving such a nice comment on my blog earlier!)

  2. I love the pear! Is there a reason the tomato SHAPE is necessary/easier to deal with/something? Because if not I love the pear's colour scheme plus unusual shape.

  3. Sarcasma, the only thing I can think is that the pear might fall over more easily, making it harder to stuff pins in one-handed? Or maybe sewers are traditionalists, and it's the tomato or nothing.
