Little House Japan glass head applique pins for fine fabrics


This listing is for one pack of Little House Japan brand - glass head applique pins. Each pack contains 120 - pins that are 20mm long x .4 mm thick.

Little house is known throughout Japan for creating exceptional sewing notions. These 120 applique pins work wonderfully for keeping your applique in place. They are very thin, but strong and sharp and they allow you to easily pin the applique in place without distortion or sliding. The tiny size also reduces thread hang-ups and allows you to add a large number of pins to small applique pieces. They can also be used for piecing and are especially well-suited for fine fabrics.

Glass heads allow you to iron over the pins without fear of damaging your work. The heads are in a pink and pale pink - clear hue.

These pins work so well. Their only drawbacks may be that they are so tiny that they are more difficult to pick up and they are easy to lose if you end up dropping one.

The packaging is in Japanese. Roughly translated it says:

Little House applique pin extra-fine. The conventional applique needle has been made better by creating a slimmer design. This allows it to go through fabric more easily. The glass head allows you to iron over the pins.

The pins are nice, and the glass heads are real and allow one to pick the pins out easily. However, they get in the way a lot, and I found regular pins without the heads work better for me.

Just as pictured,quickly sent out and received. Pleasure doing business!

Quick ship & packed well. Thanks!

I haven’t had a chance to use them yet, but I’m quite sure they will be great. They came well recommended.
