Doll Needle - Extra Extra LongAcorns & Twigs
Extra Extra long sewing needle for bringing your embroidery thread through a large doll's head.
These are actually made for beading crafts, but I am offering them here as doll supplies as I have found them very helpful when making larger dolls.
Please note, they are not as sturdy as our other sewing needles. They bend very easily and require a bit of patience getting it through the doll's head, but it offers the possibility to embroider the face that wouldn't be possible without the length these provide!
When you make a Waldorf Inspired cloth doll, you typically start on the back of the head by tying a knot in the embroidery floss and pulling it through to the front of the head, which requires a SUPER long needle to be able to reach through the entire head's diameter.
Which is what these needles are perfect for!
Needle Diameter : 0.8 mm
Needle Total Lengths:
Large: 23 cm / 9"
XL: 35.5 cm / 14"
Made in China, ready to ship from Iowa, USA.
Have not used but am happy with purchace
What a great find! Just what I needed for beginning and ending embroidered doll eyes and mouths , drawing the floss to the top of the head to fasten off. Other long needles have large eyes that leave a hole in the face fabric. These long, thin needles with small eyes solve that problem. Thank you for carrying them, Acorns & Twigs, and for such quick shipping each time I’ve ordered :blush:
Very true! I love that they are so thin - especially good for smaller figurines!! Thanks Sherri!
