Make Alphabet Pins, Number Pins, or Both!
While scrap paper and post-it notes work fine to keep quilt pieces organized, pretty alphabet and number pins work even better. Plus they’re ready to go any time you need them.
You can purchase ready-made numbered pins. Or make your own with long pins and beads. They’re simple to make and beads are available in many color combinations with both numbers and letters.
Add colorful beads to finish them off. You can have several made in a short period of time.
Start with long pins, beads, and glue. The designer prefers corsage pins because they’re long and nice-looking but choose whatever pins you like.
Nancy from My Fancy Nancy Life explains how they’re made in the following tutorial.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
