Default needle

You would think after almost 5 years of doing this, that I would know this stuff. But I am so tired of sewing my bows and being almost finished....then the needle breaks ! What kind of needle do you use to hand sew your bows????

I use milliner needles. They have an eye big enough for thick thread and they will bend before they break. I've actually have never broke one. HTH

I read a tip on here about using doll sculpting needles (I think that is what they are called) They are nice and long and I can stitch the whole bow and crease it on the needle before I pull it through to wrap and tie. Hope this makes sense.

I actually buy the variety packs from Dollar tree lol. They have 5 different varieties in there and over 50 needles for $1. In 3 years I've bent a few but never broken any.

I will have to look for these I have broken "a few" needles making bows. I tried the doll making needles, they are too long for my liking. Thanks for the tip.
