Proddy Tool

I've been working on two pillows with prodded trim.  The article by Nola A. Heidbreder in the January/February 2015 issue of Rug Hooking magazine inspired my projects.

As described in Nola's directions, the final edge of proddy is completed from the front of the pillow after it has been stuffed and sewn closed.  I didn't have the tool to perform that technique - so - I ordered the tool from Dorr Mill Store.  (I ordered the spring prodder and some wool on the 16th and the order was on my doorstep today, the 18th. That's great customer service!)

The Rugs and Pugs blog has some simple directions and accompanying photos to explain how to use the proddy tool.  Now I just need to do it.  I'll post photos of the pieces when they're complete.
