Emery sources for pincushions
I have been searching for ages for a source where I may purchase emery for pincushions. The bud part of most pincusions is just not large enough for me when I want to sharpen needles and I would love to make a customized pincushion filled with emery.
If there is not source than do you think sand would work? Or does anyone have another suggestion?
Thanks for your help
I searched the Internet a few weeks ago when I was making a pincushion/scrap bag and decided I could do without the black dust. I already have emery "berries" and a Clover brand sharpener that I found at Jo-Ann Fabric. A little pricey, but Jo-Ann always has coupons to help with that.
I settled on reptile aquarium sand for the pincushion I was making. I don't know how sharp it makes the pins, but the fine grit of the sand should have some effect.
Thank you for the tip. I will check at a pet supply place and see if this will work.
