Fabric pins are useful for holding hems, seams and patches in place while you stitch.
Glass-head pins are the greatest because they don’t melt under the heat of a clothes iron. And these Japanese glass-head pins are super lovely, with a solid colour on bottom and clear glass on top, making them an extra-special part of any mending kit.
This 'Shizuku' set includes 10 pins in red, blue, yellow, black and white, with two of each colour. Each pin measures 36mm x 0.5mm.
Pins are made in Japan from glass and metal, and packaged in a plastic test tube with cork stopper inside a cardstock box tied with ribbon cord (Oh, Japan!) by the manufacturer.
