Your question: What size sewing pins do I need?

What size are sewing pins?

Straight pins generally range in length from 1/2″ to 2 1/8″ long. Most manufacturers list the pin length on the packaging in inches or millimeters. Size numbers refer to the length in 1/16″ increments. For example, a size 20 pin is 1 1/4″ long.

Are flat head pins better for sewing?

Flat or no-head pins are basic pins good for hand sewing and projects that include ironing. On the downside, it can be difficult to see these pins on heavy patterned or textured fabrics. Plastic headed pins are cheap and very easy to spot. Usually, they have a ball-shaped head that won’t slip through the fabric.

What do you use T-pins for?

Considerably longer than a pushpin, T-pins are incredibly handy for securely fastening and holding all kinds of material together, and the shape of their heads makes it easy to push them in and slide them out. You can use them to tack artwork on a wall, to assemble and block fabrics, and much more.
