Magnetic Needleminder - Tortoiseshell Curled Cat
PIN MAY HAVE MINOR FLAWS.
I've converted some of my pins into needleminders! I've filed off the pins and used strong e6000 glue to attach an N50 strength neodymium magnet. The needleminder comes with a second matching 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 35mm (1.5”) tall.
If your needleminder has screenprinted details, extended use as a needleminder will almost certainly scratch the screenprinting and wear it away. To extend the life of the screenprinting, you may wish to coat the face of the needleminder with a thin coat of clear nail polish or other varnish. Your needleminder may have a speck of dust or minor scratches or other minor imperfection, this is unavoidable due to the handmade nature of enamel pins.
