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!

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.

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!!
