Pastel Perfection: Marbled Glass Headed Pins


Hello! I’m going crazy and comin’ at ya on a Thursday! Say whaaaat? “What is this madness?!” I hear you cry! But I’m so excited to share with you some news! I can finally reveal that I am super lucky to be partnering up with some of my favourite haberdashery brands to bring you a small series of new product reviews!

I’ve been given some new products to try out and give my honest opinions on. I am excited to try some new things and work with some amazing brands which I am sure many of us already use. Does Gutermann ring any bells? Ever heard of Clover? Vlieseline? and Sew Easy? Of course you have! They’re huge! And I am so excited to be working with them!


First up in my series of sewing tool/haberdashery reviews are some pins. Seems ordinary right? Anyone who sews needs pins, you probably already have some. But these pins are a little bit special. They were the top of my list of things to ask for from Clover, they were even on my Mother’s Day wishlist! (Hint to anyone with a crafty mum – she would definitely like these!) They are marbled glass headed pins and they are sooo pretty!


I have been after some glass headed pins for a while as I am constantly concerned that I am going to melt my cheap plastic ones with an iron. But there are so many different kinds of pins out there that I wouldn’t know where to start. Fortunately, these are pretty. So decision made! They come in packs of 20 and the glass heads vary a lot in size which make them feel very unique and special. They are also sharp. I didn’t realise how blunt my old pins were until I used these – they are WAY more sharp!


I have been using these pins for two different projects and they have held up to both a thick corduroy project and a fine cotton one so they definitely seem versatile! I also love that I can use them near a hot iron and not worry about melting them.


Finally, I am probably the only seamstress out there with a phobia of pins and needles. Anyone else out there? I am terrified of injections and feel instantly sick if I prick myself with a pin. The idea of sewing through a finger is pretty much my worst nightmare. Sadly, I can’t claim these pins are a cure for that BUT I do like that they come in their own little envelope with a slot for each pin.


I need to know where they all are at all times so using a pincushion etc is out of the question for me. I used to use one of those wheels of pins as I need to count them away at the end of each session so that I don’t freak out I am going to step on one ( I know I’m a total weirdo!) so I love that these pins come in this cute pastel envelope so I can keep track of them all!


For more information you can head over to the Clover website and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to drop them an email at
