I've made this for a friend who loves skulls
I thought that it'll take me not more than 2 hours. Ha Ha.
It was such a pain in the a§§ to get the beads onto my thick yarn.
I tried the nailpolish trick mentioned in the book which leaves me sitting with red sticky fingers (I had only red nailpolish left) waiting for it to dry.
It never dries.
Then I invented a trick (clever me) which includes a needle, sewing thread and something we call Einfädelhilfe here.
6 hours later my present was ready.




She was very happy. that's all that counts in the end, isn't it?

Wow!  I loved that you used beads.

I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to add this to my Wists! Smiley

Yay for Einfädelhilfe!

*lach*
Ich wüßte auch nicht, wo man so ein Wort rausfinden soll (vor allem, weil es im Deutschen bestimmt noch einen hochnottechnischen Namen hat, den aber kein Mensch kennt ;-)
Cool, ich freu mich immer, wenn ich Leute von hier seh. Gruß aus Berlin!

und ähm... sorry für Off-Topic.

Thanks for all the nice comments.
And yeah, Einfädelhilfe is great. I looked everywhere to find a translation for this word. Schönen Gruß aus Bremen ins schöne Berlin.

Haha... I was just looking for a photo on google (to post here and ask somebody what it is called in English) when I found a picture of a package which had the English description on. It's a Needle Threader.

Edit to say that we'd have found it here  if we only knew the correct German term to search for. Wink

sorry for hijacking, I promise I'll keep quiet now. Smiley
