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.

This shop is in slow mode so I can enjoy a better work-life integration as a shop owner and mum of two tiny tots. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch the next day (Friday).
Australia Post has been experiencing significant delays. If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
