This is what I need to do. Now that I'm getting a little arthritis I am finding it harder & harder to pick up the pins. Thanks for sharing your idea and your cute pins.

They look pretty that way. A lot of us in the pincushion swap make decorative pins to swap too.

I love your pins with the beads! Those are my favorite pins; but I lose so many of them. I probably lose them because of the small heads. I should use your idea.

What a great idea!!! I have found myself struggling more and more to grasp the pins from my magnetized pin dish. This would certainly help a bit.

What kind of beads are they? Can you get them at Wally's World? I live in a small community and we only have Walmart for shopping. I would love to do that with my pins. You have a wonderful idea! Yes, you could make them and sell them and pay for fabric. I would buy them.
