This is a simple, little trick on how to thread yarn through a needle. If you already know this tip, you already know it is as automatic as breathing. If you don’t, you will wonder how you ever did without it.

African Butterfly Magic Hair Clip is alternatively known as double hair comb with elastic, butterfly clip, hairclip, double magic hair comb, double beaded hair comb, magic hair comb. If you have used a Butterfly Magic Hair Clip before you will fully appreciate how much better they are than just about any other hair clip.
