I had heard about the PinPen’s but really didn’t want to put in the $15 (or whatever it is) and then not use the darn thing. Plus my weeding tool was right here.
I saw a large pack of needles at Dollar General and I knew I had a ton of mechanical pencils at home so decided what the heck. I tried labeling with a P-Touch and for some unknown reason it never wanted to stick and I didn’t want to pick it up thinking it was a mechanical pencil. I did one with a 0.9 pencil (which is MIA at the moment) and a 0.5. Labeled just for my OCD.
They do work really well but if you have to take stitches out of anything, it’s REMARKABLY fast! Better than using a seam ripper.
