French ball spring safety pins

French ball spring safety pins

Ysolda

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.
