The Safety pin is a humble knight in shining armor!
It can replace a missing button on your shirt, fight a falling hem of your dress, tighten your shoulder straps or hold your skirt around your waist.
Safety Pins are a simple last-minute fashion-fix to evade wardrobe embarrassment or unwanted peek-a-boos.
We are constantly trying to ensure that the safety pins are not visible. Why use that metal safety-pin when you can use a colored one? Colored safety pins from market may not be of the color you are looking for, so why make one yourself?
