After seeing Norene's beautiful shuttles made from a yardstick on her blog here, I remembered I need some more shuttles. But not having much time, I knocked out some quick and easy shuttles with wooden rulers bought from the dollar store.

Using a small hacksaw, I cut a Vee shaped notch in each end of the ruler.

 

Then I sanded and smoothed all the edges using sandpaper wrapped around another ruler.

That was it, it was easy, it was quick. But not as pretty as Norene's.

Have a good day!
