New Enamel Pin Display
In case you haven’t noticed, I have been bit by the enamel pin bug! So much so, that I have dipped my toe into designing enamel pins myself. I have been contemplating the best way to store/display my growing collection when not in use and was quite excited to find this denim canvas at our local art shop.
It’s like having an oversize denim jean jacket! The best feature is that the depth is almost an inch so I can keep the backs on the pins without scratching the wall. This denim canvas serves as a holding place for the pins not currently being displayed on a tote bag, thread catcher, jacket, etc. I frequently change out the pin flair on my tote bags depending on my mood or occasion.
Do you collect enamel pins? If so, how do you show off your pins? I went through old photos (because I am too lazy to take new pictures at the moment) to share some of the ways I like to “wear” my pins. If I were to photograph the current state of my tote bags, sew together bag, thread catcher, etc. today (again…I’m too lazy), you would see a wider variety of pins. I took advantage of Small Business Saturday to add to my collection ;-)))
To recap (and mention others that aren’t pictured), I have pins displayed on my canvas board, various tote bags, bulletin board, sew together bag, laptop case, sewing machine travel bag, jean jacket, shirt collar, guild name tag, wee braw bag, Fringe Association bag, project pouches, and thread catchers. So, have I missed any methods for displaying pins?
If you are curious about any of the pins and where I got them, let me know. There are too many to attempt and link to them all, but I am happy to share that information. I look forward to hearing about any pin suggestions you may have.
Thanks and happy stitching,
