A bodkin is a blunt, thick needle with a large eye used especially for drawing tape or cord through a hem.
The Flex 'n Glide Bodkin by Nancy Zieman is a long, thin, and flexible bodkin that features an elongated “eye” with grippers that really work. The elongated eye accommodates ribbons and trims up to 1-1/2" wide. The "grippers" hold trims and elastic in place while pulling through the casing.
The package has 2 sizes of bodkins. This is an affordable sewing tool set that is very handy to have on hand when you need it.
