Bodkin




Have you ever heard of a "bodkin"? It's a small, sharp tool that was once used to make holes in fabric or leather. Bodkins were also used to thread ribbon or lace through garments. Today, bodkins are still used by some craftspeople, but they are not as common as they once were.

I first learned about bodkins when I was taking a sewing class. The instructor showed us how to use a bodkin to make a hole in the fabric, and then how to thread a ribbon through the hole. I was amazed at how easy it was to use a bodkin.

I have since used bodkins for a variety of projects, including making jewelry and tassels. I find them to be a very versatile tool.
Here are a few of the ways that you can use a bodkin:

  • Make holes in fabric or leather
  • Thread ribbon or lace through garments
  • Make jewelry
  • Make tassels
  • Embroider
  • Quilt

Bodkins are a relatively inexpensive tool, and they can be found at most craft stores.
If you are interested in learning more about bodkins, I encourage you to do some research online. There are many helpful resources available.
