NOTE: Thanks to Ann Shayne there's been a run on these! I'm out of the kraft envelopes and they've been discontinued so new orders will be filled with the same size/type envelope but in manila instead of the brown. (At least until I can find a new supplier.) The contents are exactly the same!
I saw a few of these coil-less Asian safety pins in a photo somewhere many moons ago and immediately went on a hunt for them, thinking (quite rightly) that they'd be ideal stitch markers. Slender and elegant in antiqued brass, they do their job without getting in your way. I love them so much I use them even for projects where "removable" isn't a requirement. Of course, they also work for anything you'd use a standard safety pin for.
I've packaged sets of 20 in sturdy
kraft manila seed envelopes, adorned with actual-size drawings in case you happen to own both sets and need to know which you're grabbing at a glance.
- qty. 20
- antiqued brass
- 7/8" long
- fits up to 6.5mm/US10.5 needle
