This is a hand made pincushion. It is a glass jar with a magnet in the lid to help retrieve your pins with out getting stuck. The top is a place to save the pins you are working with. The jar is about 4 inchs tall and then the cushion is about two inches. You can also put cloth tape measure in it or thumb tacks or paper clips. If you would like one in a diff color just pm me. I take paypal. Thank you!!
