Magnetic Needleminder - Wombat and Pink Gumnut Blossoms
PIN MAY HAVE MINOR FLAWS.
I've converted one of my pins into a needleminder! I've filed off the pins and used strong glue to attach a very strong neodymium magnet. The needleminder comes with a second magnet to allow you to attach it to your fabric as you work, to hold your needles and pins safely. The needleminder can also be worn as a pin on lightweight clothing, with your shirt sandwiched between the magnets. This allows you to wear the pin without putting pinholes in your nice clothes! It also works as a refrigerator magnet!
Each hard enamel needleminder is 40mm (1.5”) wide. The video shows one of my other needleminders, featuring a rainbow lorikeet and grevillea flower. It is just to show the strength of the magnets, and their ability to hold needles even when gently shaken.
