Vocabulary Lesson

Just for fun, and because I'm short on time, today's post will be a short sewing vocabulary lesson. 

What on earth is a Bodkin?

A bodkin is a very useful tool to have in your sewing basket (or big plastic tub if you are like me).  Mine looks like this:

You use this nifty little device to pull things, like elastic, through a casing or tube of fabric.  Even if you don't sew, you could use one of these. . .I promise.  Have you ever lost one end of a drawstring in a jacket or pair of pants?  This is so much better than a safety pin to pull it back through.
