and while I get my fingers pricked every now and then, I’ve learnt (obviously not in a very positive way….ouch!) that this step is really quite critical in ensuring my bins turn out looking great. Tacking, in sewing terms, is making a temporary stitch to hold in place pieces of fabric or trimmings. For this important step, I love Clover’s flower head pins because they are alot sturdier and longer than the regular tacking pins, thus able to hold together the thick layers of fabric and interfacing that I use. The flat head makes it convenient for machine stitching too!
This is how my bins look after they’re tacked, all “assembled” and ready for stitching!
