Custom Straight Pins.

I made these cute pins for my sister for Christmas, but never got around to posting them. I thought now was the perfect time to share them, since they would also make a great Mother's Day present.
They're made with Shrinky Dinks. They were so much fun to make, I'm dying to make more for myself. I got my tutorial from Wee Wonderfuls HERE.

I made a little of everything for her, but tried to make most of them sewing related.
The scissors are my favorite.
I also like the dress forms.
Can you tell what is on my mind most of the time?

You could also try these push pins I made HERE.
