This is totally fascinating..but can it work with inkjets or it is restricted to lazer printers only?

Yep..tis the reverse side of coverstitching. I have a Brother coverstitch machine, which wasn't terribly expensive, but does a great job on knit hems. The only issue with it is it likes a strong light thread like Gutturmans ( sp?) in the needles, although serger thread like Maxilock is fine in the looper. Decorative thread would probably work too..tho I haven't tried it myself.

The Janome machines are very nice too, but I was cheap and went with this one..it does the job. <Smiley

Thanks! I'm glad there's some confirmation for the wire idea..it's what I was leaning towards. I'm thinking I'll make a sprial at the end where it goes into the body cavity to anchor it in the fiberfill too.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / How to get my halo on: March 27, 2010 02:01:00 AM
Greetings, this is a question for anyone who's made plushies with props before. Smiley
I'm making an 11in. UFO style angel plushie and want her halo to stick up about an inch or so over the top of her head. My question is...what should I use as a support to attach the halo- heavy wire, a plastic rod of some sort? I've ruled out wood because it's probably be too easily broken. Also, does it make sense to have the support be long enough to go down through the entire head, neck and partly into the body of the plush or would that be overkill? I just don't want the halo to be all wobbly. This plush will have to survive being dragged around at an anime convention so any advice is appreciated.
Thanks
EA
