<BR><BR> <Font Size=+2 Color='#0000FF'><EM> A bodkin is a small tool used to pass ribbon or cord through a casing or holes, and weave it through crocheted or loosely woven fabric or netting.  Before the invention of buttons, hooks & eyes, snaps and zippers, garments were held together with lacing. Bodkins were often used to pass the lacing cord through the holes.  Bodkins are among the oldest sewing tools in existence.</EM></Font>.<BR><BR>
