Norwegian Chicken Pincushion

This Norwegian Chicken pincushion is made using quilting cottons, raw-edge stitched onto foundation fabric. It is stuffed with grain (rice, lentils or sorghum depending on what I have most of at the time!), and given its weight, doesn't budge when you stick pins or needles into it as you work. It will comfortably sit on the arm of your armchair. I have stuffed the head so that it won't flop as the grains settle. Ideal little gift for the quilter, sewer or embroiderer. 

These pincushions also serve as a handy doorstop. 

I can custom make this item in any colour.
