I'm making a tote bag for my cousin using a Twister mat. I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to use that clear "invisible" thread, but I was looking at the plastic/vinyl case on my sewing maching and it's sewn together with regular thread! Can someone help me?

I would use the monafilament thread-it's like fishing wire.

There are such things as transparent threads that you can buy at your local fabric and notions store. I would have to admit that they are *a littlie* hard to find. They look like fishing wire and come in various colors from clear to smokey black. There's a link below if you want to see how they look:

Thanks! Even though I had that kind of thread, I ended up using regular thread. My machine didn't like the plastic thread... but the bag has held up great.
