Safety pins are like gold in the fashion world—my fashion world, that is. Every time one comes pinned to a newly purchased item of clothing, I tuck it away in a special corner of my jewelry drawer, and bring it out for special occasions—like a blouse who’s much too revealing for my taste, which tends to happen often. (Kind of ironic, since you have to actually have boobs that need hiding, but that’s a “poor-me-and-my-flat-chest” story for another day.) Anyways, what else can you do with safety pins? More than you realize. Follow the link below for 5 things you didn’t know you could use them for, and just wait, you’ll start hoarding them like me.
