Inu Dog Pack Pin Cushion
Woof! Your eyes do not deceive you. Yes, these are miniature dogs on the heads of pins! **mind blown**
The cushion is wool, felted by hand in the shape of a dog bone. The hand-formed pins consist of 4 distinctly different dogs and a house to hold them all.
The pins are hand made by an artist in Kyoto who specializes in making miniature pins. We absolutely love that this is a thing...that someone gets to spend their days not only making miniatures, but miniatures just for sewing pins.
By the way, "Inu" is the Japanese word for dog.
Dimensions: ~1" x 3" long; pins are 38mm long
Each pin cushion and set of pins is nicely packaged and boxed.
