Long needles are essential for doll making as they can go through otherwise unreachable areas of the head and body of the doll and are necessary for the placement of facial features. Easy to thread, sharp, and sturdy with clean eyes that will not fray thread. Useful too for getting through batting when tying quilts, doing soft sculpture, upholstery and other crafts.
Doll Making Tip! Doll needles are wider than your usual sewing needle and should be inserted only once or twice in the same spot or you could be left with a hole. For best results, when embroidering the facial features use the doll needle to move you thread through the head from back to front and back again, switching to an embroidery needle when doing the actual embroidering of the eyes and mouth. This technique is included in a Joy's Waldorf Dolls pattern.
