Make a Needle :: Free Guest How To

Su of Tangled Crafts has sent us all another great how to! How to make your own weaving needle from old gift cards. Here is what she says about it:

“My usual suggestion for a makeshift weaving needle is to use a hairclip.  But what if you don’t have a hairclip to hand?  If you don’t normally use them, you might as well go out & buy a pack of needles as a pack of hairclips (although the hairclips would be cheaper).  Where this idea came from I really don’t know, but for some reason it occurred to me yesterday that if you have an old, used-up store gift card, or an expired bank or credit card, you can make a collection of weaving needles very easily, for absolutely zero cost!”

What a great idea! I think really easily you could also make little bobbins for weaving or knitting – which are great when you are working with multiple colors.

I’ll see you all tomorrow with some rereleasing of patterns :)

Happy Crafting until then!
Kristin
