the stuff that you by the tube is too thin and soft.

you need the big coarse stuff... wider gauge stuff.
i found some at wal-mart for $.77/yd.

next time i get out to joann's i'll price it there, too.

the fuzzy socks make such soft and cuddly monkeys.
i'm sure the baby will love it.

target has some really nice soft furry socks in the kids section right now.

tulle!!! thank you!!!

my aunt sent me these scrubbies. i asked her about them, but i guess she forgot, or something. not sure...

so i decided to go on a mission to make some myself.

anyhow... i found this cord, which is kinda similar, which i now realize is rope. i thought it was some sort of yarn. since it kinda looked the same as the scrubbies and came in a bag of craft stuff.

sooo, after you said tulle, i further inspected the scrubbies, and tulle. doh!!! all that searching and stress. all i had to do was pull at them a little. been using them for weeks and never dawned on me.

this is why i should stick to what i know, it's a headache to see something and go, "i want to make those!"


anyhow, i now have red and black tulle to make some with my mom for the kitchen. and we'll probably put a basket of them on our craft table. i'll include a sweet little reference to craftser, since i would have taken even longer to figure it out without you...

it would have come down to cutting the ones i have up... after they are good and used. i love them. they work.

it seems like plastic... ish. it's not wool, i'm pretty sure, i think it's not. it feels totally synthetic.

i know it's a tough one, i was hoping that maybe if i put out the call, someone might know what i'm talking about. i've tried every search i can think of.

you can use it to make crochet dish/feet scrubbies.

it's really abrasive.

i cannot seem to find out where to find it. it's abrasive, coarse, and thick. i've seen it, i know it exists, but i cannot find it anywhere. i've tried all sorts of searches.

im actually looking into reviews and pricing of speedball, i did find some kits on ebay, maybe look there. a lot of sellers ship out of the country.

the prices aren't much competitive for new unopened, but if you can't find anyone to send it to the UK, else wise, ebay is the way to go.
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: One Stitch [sewing gun-type thingy... ??] on: August 09, 2007 02:55:38 PM
thanks so much....

it's not the handy stitch, not a mini sewing machine. the quilter basting thing is more like what i saw.

it essentially was advertised to attach a button in public, with one stitch. it feeds those same plastic things that hang tags on clothing.

or even something that's make to do that. i want to hang ear tags from my monkeys and on my pin cushions, clothing and other stuff. the kind that you take off before you wear them.

like price tags and logo thingys.




edit... i think that basting gun is pretty much what it is. thanks so much.
