Small hemostats

small hemostats for dollmaking and other projects

The best tool for turning dolls inside-out, stuffing, and holding things in place.  The small 4″ pair is perfect for turning small parts like doll fingers or the 8″ cloth characters at Ballyhoo Creations.  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. The small hemostats can be found anywhere fishing supplies are sold – including Walmart where I found some for $4 {they use them to remove fishhooks}  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.  I’ve been pleased with my 4″ and 10″ pairs for many years.
