Pinmoors & a finish

Although i started late sewing Thursday i did finish a bag. No sewing on Friday as i had to go into Ipswich but more on that later. A while back i bought Pinmoors to try out but just haven't had a chance to. As i needed to baste the bag i was sewing i decided it was time to try the Pinmoors.
The Pinmoors just get pushed onto the end of normal sewing pins.
I had a little difficulty getting the ends of the pins to stick up to push the Pinmoors on. I used bag wadding so maybe that is why. I shall try the Pinmoors through 3 layers with normal wadding on another project before i decide if i like them or not.
All done. :)

The back. Another gawjus pattern by the lovely Joy.

Happy Stitching,

Hello Jeanette. You are one speedy hand piecer!! 7 in one evening! By the way, as I was reading your other blog posts, I noticed you have tried Pinmoors. Have you tried them with regular batting? Come check out my blog...I came up with a "ghetto" version of pinmoors...and I am curious if they are similar.
