When it comes to sewing stuffed animals and dolls, these specialized needles are definitely a "Sewing Essential".
The pack provides a variety of lengths, thicknesses and eye size openings to suit every possible type of soft toys stitching. Whether you are ladder stitching the opening of your soft toy closed or embroidering facial features....whether you are working with a light weight cotton or a heavy weight fleece.....you're covered.
I also like that the needle eyes are wide enough to accommodate multiple strands of embroidery floss for more defined features. Yarn will even easily slide through the largest ones.
The length provides the extra you need to complete your stitching easily too.
And if your fabric is thick or dark enough that you won't see the threads passing through, the extra long needles make it very easy to move from feature to feature without having to knot off your thread and start over with each one.
In this image, I wanted to see if I could stitch the facial features more defined by using the embroidery floss without separating any of the threads. No problem! Fast, easy and bold features.
Doll Needles.....a Sewing Essential for anyone who enjoys making dolls and soft toys.
