Pin Cushions Pair Italian Chefs w Mushroom Hats Vintage Sewing #17070

Item number: 17070

This pair of vintage pin cushions are authentic vintage 1960s or early 1970s. At first you might think you seem mushrooms or toadstools, but they are hand made Italian chefs.

They are not frilly pin cushions for ladies like many vintage pin cushion designs. The pin cushions were cleverly made from empty spools of thread and embellished with googly eyes, felt faces, and plaid fabric hats with pom-poms.

The pin cushions are 2 1/2" and 3" tall. They are both clean and in good condition with the only signs of wear to the white felt around the spools. One has a felt bottom covering the bottom of the spool and the other does not.
