Large hemostats

large hemostats for dollmaking

The best tool for turning dolls inside-out, stuffing, and holding things in place.  The large 10″ hemostats work great on larger projects like the 11″ Ballyhoo cloth characters.  Once you start using them, you’ll wonder how you crafted without them.  I prefer the straight ones but you can also get them with a curved tip.  Best time-saver ever!

Amazon is OK for these. You might also find them at hardware stores like Harbor Freight {look for locking clamp pliers} or medical/science supplies such as American Science and Surplus.

Get a large pair and a smaller pair, you’ll thank me later.
