I've had two needle holders for ages and I've wanted to use them but there's been a problem.
When I get 1 needle I end up pulling 3 or more with it because the thread would mix together. I ended up spending more time looking after the needles and where they go then stitching, it just put me off.
Have any of you got them and what did you do?
I forgot about them until I started stitching April Fairy, so I thought what could I do to fix my problem?
Well I think I have it.
2 A3 paper
McDonalds straws because they are bigger
Double sided sticky tape
I cut the straws in half and well here is a few photos
Doing the back was harder to do.
I think it will work, it stops the threads mixing. I have to now make another and I will let you all know if it works like I hope. If not it did not cost much to make anyway.
What do you think of my outside of the box idea?
If it works I hope my stitching will be a little faster.
