Fancy Ribbon Straight Pins

 I use straight pins for more than just sewing and they seem to disappear rather quickly. It is wonderful that they come in a large variety of colors...
and designs.
But I just can't seem to get myself to spend $4.00 on a package of them. So I decided to make my own Fancy Ribbon straight pins. 
I started with just a few pins and some leftover ribbon..
Then I sewed a little square,leaving one side open.
 Then I inserted a pin just before I closed up the square.
 Lastly I cut and trimmed the ribbon on both sides.
  Fancy Ribbon Straight pin was done! They are fairly addictive to make and made several in a just few minutes.
They come in handy not only for sewing but for securing my jewelry during photo shoots..
and easy to see when you drop them in the lawn!
