Inexpensive Locking Forceps Hemostats – Best for Beginners

These cheap hemostats from WalMart work very well for medium sized doll parts like arms, legs, ears, necks, etc.  They have a wide surface area for excellent grip to minimize tearing your fabric.  They work for everything at Ballyhoo Creations except for the small hands and ears on the cloth character art dolls.  (those need the tiny nosed hemostats instead)

If you are just starting out and need hemostats – I suggest these.  They are under $5 at Walmart, and sometimes half that price!
