A Canvas Needle For Your Kit

There are all kinds of needles. The canvas needle in particular is a fairly heavy duty strong needle which could be used for all sorts of applications. It’s primary function — sewing-stitching canvas type material, lends itself towards stitching most any material into useful things, be it heavy duty or light duty. Only your imagination will limit it’s use.

For a survival kit, a canvas needle could provide solutions for many additional things including that of it’s primary design. You might consider including one in your preps.

Here is a list of a few additional uses for a canvas needle…


 
The tip of a canvas needle is pointed, but with triangular flat sides at the tip. It is slightly more than 2-inches long and about twice the thickness of a typical sewing needle. They can typically be found in a pack of ‘Repair Needles’ commonly found in some fabric stores.
