Do you have a needle that has become dull? Don’t throw it away! Sharpen it with this quick and easy tip instead.
You can sharpen a needle simply by using it to sew through a piece of fine grit sand paper. A few inches should do the trick, although if the needle has become very dull, you might have to keep at it for a little longer.
Do this regularly – every few months if you do a lot of sewing – and you’ll be able to keep them sharp for years to come.
This sharpening tip will work equally well for both sewing machine needles and regular needles. Just don’t overdo it with sewing machine needles, you don’t want to grind them completely away ;-Dneedles, quick_tips
