Presentation Pincushion

Presentation Pincushion This unusual project, utilizing our Monogram Sets, is a presentation pincushion.

This project utilizes letters from our Buttons Monogram Set.

Beginning in 17th Century England, pincushions were a very popular gift - often given as layette cushions at the birth of a baby, with decorations, dates and initials or names created with carefully arranged pinheads. Until about 1830 pins were manufactured by hand, and were extremely expensive - a very welcome gift indeed. These gifts reached the height of their popularity during the late 18th and early 19th Century.

We've modernized this concept a bit, using a pin-head decoration as a compliment to a letter from our Buttons Monogram Set.
