I dont like to pin or baste if I don't have to. I have learned that I usually need 3 pins per item at the most. I found that if I get out three of the pretty flower pins and put them on a magnet by my machine (my machine is NOT ELECTRONIC) I am always sure I removed all the pins from the garment. If you have ever found a pin inside a garment that you made you'll know the fear that someone ELSE will suffer the same fate. So, for Baby and infant stuff I count out the no. of Flower pins and make sure I have the same number of them when I finish sewing. This works when you're doing handwork, too. No more lost pins in the carpet!

Oh, if only my mother had this tip back in '84 when she made me a robe and left all the pins in the collar! Ouch!!

A good reminder about safety, Janie. I am always obsessive about pins in baby clothes - scares me to death to think there still might be one in there.
