The quilting tool you never knew you had........

Recently, I happened upon a very handy tool for quilting - I bet you even own one yourself! What's that you might ask? Well...........


It's a plastic serrated knife silly!

What in the world of quilting could you possibly use that for?



Why, for closing safety pins used in basting your quilt of course!
The knife slides easily underneath the pin without damaging the fabric, and without your fingers being pricked by the point of the pin. In addition, the serrated teeth grab the pin, so that it is extremely easy to navigate the closure. Try it - I guarantee it, or your money back!













OR you could spend the $8.99 suggested retail on something like this:

Money spent elsewhere = missed fabric opportunities!!!!
