Wandering Fig Studio

Echidna pincushion, gift for sewer/quilter. Eco friendly, biodegradable gift.

Handmade needle felted pure wool cute Australian echidna inspired pin cushion. A fun gift for your sewing, quilting or craft room or unique gift for your friend or relative. Price includes standard shipping within Australia.

This pincushion was inspired by an echidna that was admitted into the wildlife rehabilitation centre in Perth where I was a volunteer wildlife worker.

If you are unfamiliar with needle felting it is the craft of piercing tufts of raw wool hundreds of times using a very sharp needle with tiny barbs to sculpt various shapes and figures. Each piece takes many, many hours to complete.

Made from wool sourced from a New Zealand Corriedale sheep breed, the sheep are not mulesed and are very well cared for.

This item is made to order, each one is handmade and unique and may vary from the images shown. Approximately 13cm long, 7cm wide and 5cm in height. Once you have ordered it will take me 3-5 days to make your pincushion prior to shipping so please allow time for this plus shipping time if you are gifting this item. For multiple orders, shipping estimate will be longer than estimated. Your echidna pincushion will be shipped in biodegradable packaging that can be recycled or composted.

Please note that pins are not supplied unless requested.

This sculpture is made from animal fibre (sheep's wool) so please be mindful of this if you or your gift recipient have any allergies to wool. This pincushion is not intended to be used as a toy for children.
