French ball spring safety pins

Every notions kit needs safety pins and these are my favourite for actually pinning things together. The ball spring makes these stronger than a regular coil-less safety pin, but just as snag-proof.

I use them for pinning garment pieces together for seaming, marking button placement and holding small numbers of stitches. They’ll work as a stitch marker in a pinch, and can be trusted not to slip out when pinned through your work—I frequently use them to indicate the right side or keep track of a row count.
