Recently, I saw this tutorial! And thought--what a great idea! Easy to make and perfect little gift for all my sewing friends. Thanks to Mary L Tosch for sharing this information!
First off, I looked in every store that I visited for a week--no poultry lacing kits! and you would think with Thanksgiving just around the corner, there would be plenty of these things around! Going to the internet was the next thought--you know, you can find anything on the internet!!!
Next to find the jewelry glue that is recommended in the tutorial--I had to settle for this instead. but, it works!
I think the hardest thing about this whole project is finding beads that will fit onto the shaft
I have a large selection of beads, too! But, there were only so many that would fit comfortably. I did break a few when I forced them on--not a good idea!
Now, we have a supply of sewing stilettos to give sewing friends! Once, I got started, I couldn't stop!
Take a look at Mary's list of what a stiletto will do for you! My friends said it was the prettiest thing on their pincushion.
