Awhile ago I bought a package of 200 safety pins for a project, but only used about 50 of them. A few weeks later I looked at the pins and thought that they kind of looked like feathers. So I took a pinstripe jacket out of my closet and used the safety pins to make a pair of wings on the back. I got a lot of compliments on that jacket, so I ended up making several more. This is my most recent one.
