Sewing for Beginners!

What is that? Well, if you are a beginner sewer you are probably asking this question. This is a Bodkin. It is a blunt instrument for threading or as I solely use it to put my elastic through the waist band! I lost mine this summer and the other day was blessed to be able to go spend a couple hours in a fabric store and got me another bodkin along with saturating my self with fabric goodness!! HA!! and also use a gift card my sweet aunt gave me for my birthday! Thanks, Aunt Peggy and thanks Mom for watching the kiddos for me to leave for a few hours!!

Now of course a safety pin works very well inserting elastic but once you use the bodkin..... well, you will see! Where can I find a bodkin? At any craft/fabric store usually by the needles, snaps, and measuring tapes. How much does a bodkin cost? This little treasure was under $3 (worth every bit of it!)
