When it comes to needles I have a dilemma. I have lots of them and like to carry them with my projects. But I don’t like round needlecases. For me they either have tops that fall off or are too small. Over the years I have tried many different things to hold my needles, but have mostly been dissatisfied.
One, a recycled mint tin, had a hole in an odd place, so you couldn’t get the needles out. Another, a pill case, is too short for the 22 needles I like. The one I’m using now has top and bottom joined, but not completely, so the needles get stuck in it.
As a result, I’m on the lookout for a new needlecase. So I was delighted when I found these delightful metal tins from tinytins on etsy. Right now there are about 100 tins in the shop. I am in love with this little piece of art for my stitching.
The tins come in several shapes and sizes, suitable for holding lots of things. The one I bought, pictured above, is about the size of a tiny Altoids tin. They also come with a wide variety of designs, including needles, buttons, braces monsters (for rubberbands), guitar picks, and lots more.
The designs are done in vinyl, not inkjet labels, and are on metal tins.
A small, adorable and individual enhancement to your stitching accessories.
