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.
Super fast shipping. The needle is perfect for making stuffed animals. Thank you so much!!
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!
