Danglies


Aren't these cute? They are the bottom dangly part for some things I'm making to swap. The fabric part at the top won't show -- it's just to hold the fibres securely. But I can't show the finished art! That would ruin the surprise. But I really like these, and boy-o-boy, was it ever hard to thread the fibre through a needle. Is there an easier way to put beads on a fibre?

You can use a big eye needle to thread your fibres. It's basically a beading needle that has one giant hole that collapses around the fibre...I'll have to check for you to see who the manufacturer is, if you like.

Hi Martha,
You can get the 'big eye' needles at bead f/x in scarborough either by going in person or have it delivered. I have yet to use mine but it would seem to fit the bill. They come in 2 lengths.
