✂-Designer's Tip of The Day-Pins!
There are many different types of pins to choose from, how do you know which pins are best for which project?
Glass Pins- Usually a finer point, best to use with fine fabrics such as silk chiffon or silk charmeuse. These pins won't melt if passed under the iron.
Quilting Pins- Quilting pins are much longer than the basic pin. They can be used for making garments but harder to use on small curves.
Dress maker Pins- These pins have no ball at the end and are used in draping so that they can hold fabric in place on a dress form for marking.
Oh.... ever wonder what the little tomato is used for? Sharpening the pins!
Happy Friday! ♥
