1. Slide one colored bead, an alphabet bead, and a second colored bead onto a head pin or eye pin. I used head pins for my stitch markers.
Cut the head pin, leaving about a half an inch at the top.
2. Using your needle-nose pliers, bend the top of the head pin to form a hook.
3. Slide the hook through the circle on the end of the S-hook.
4. Using your needle-nose pliers, squeeze the hook together, completely closing the hook and securing it onto the S-hook.
That is it! You are now ready to attach your hook size stitch marker to your project. You can also make yourself some with numbers to keep track of what row you are on.
Or make words by using the entire length of the head or eye pin.
There you have it! Super simple, but also very useful.
