I saw a bunch of these online - sewing stilettos made from turkey laces and beads. The perfect tool to keep your fingers out from under the needle when sewing.
I bought a package of turkey laces - not easy to find this time of year - and then dug through the beads I had. The tricky thing was finding beads with the correct size hole. My choices were limited, but I think they turned out pretty cute. I may make more of them.
