Sunday I purchased some plaid wool material at the Fayetteville antique mall.  It’s 60″ wide, about 2 yards long garment weight.  It will be a multi purpose item, shawl/short bog dress so I decided to just hem the raw edges.   I used one of the bone needles I made and some hand spun wool thread to stitch it up.  The needle is less than 2″ long.  This needle was cut from a piece of deer bone then ground to shape on sandstone and slate.  The eye was drilled with a small pocket knife.
