felting needle failsDIY Needle Holder

I usually felt for hours at a time, most of the day, everyday so finding a comfortable needle felting tool was a top priority! I felt with a single needle and up until several years ago I didn’t use anything other than the bare needle. The needle wasn’t comfortable and my fingers ached after hours of felting.

I tried several ways to make the needle more comfortable to hold. I tried dipping the end of the needle in plasti dip, which did help a tiny bit for comfort but the plastic soon fell apart and came off the needle.

My husband made some wooden ends for me and they were awkward no matter what size he made them.

I have purchased holders that are hard to hold in my hand and I have always gone back to using just the needle. I finally found the perfect solution and have been using it with complete comfort ever since.
