    Leather sewing needles

    Just had swmbo come back from asda and got a set of needles 1.40, for 7:
    Five different size straight ones and two curved ones.
    So now on with the next couple of projects of some pouches.

    Best needles I've found are short (2-2.5") blunt tipped ones with a large/long eye, very strong and follow pre-made holes way easier than sharp tipped ones (they wander and make their own holes).

    Wool needles are the ones I use. Again with the pre-made holes and works a treat.
