If you’re someone who sews a lot, you might notice your straight pins will get a bit dull after repeated use. Instead of tossing them in the trash, make yourself a pin cushion with steel wool in it. This will sharpen the points enough with each storing that you’ll never have to buy another set of straight pins! Well, never say never. If you lose them like I do, you’ll still need to replenish the stash every once in awhile!
