Needle in ear plug
Yes a double oops! This was to be posted first on Monday and then yesterday as part of my Monday night tips and tidbits but I forgot. Yes I’m trying to get back to posting on a regular basis!
In an earlier post I had this item in a photograph and said I would explain it later. Well it is now later.
The red thing is an ear plug (unused!) I stuck my piercing needle (just a regular embroidery needle) as far in as I could. Now I just grab the ear plug and start piercing my paper. It gives a little cushion but I can still feel the needle. Makes it so much easier on the fingers. And when I am done I can just stick the ear plug needle into the foam for the next time I need it. Easy to spot too because of the red color. So far I have not had the needle come out of the ear plug.

Happy Stitching (or in this case piercing)!

What a clever way to repurpose an ear plug!
