1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Emi Jay Hair Tie Elastic?! Help! on: November 03, 2014 05:19:18 PM

I am trying to figure out what type of elastic is used to make the new "Skinny" hair ties - and find a place to buy it in large quantities.

I know they use Fold Over Elastic for their standard hair ties -

But what about their 1/4" hair ties and headbands?



I want to use it to make bracelets...

Oy! Too much Googling!  Huh I just can't figure it out! I'm hoping someone here would know?

Thanks for replying to my post! The good news is the company I will be purchasing the sheets from agreed to cut them to the size I need! Now I don't have to worry about cutting them myself.

Thanks again for your help!

Woah!! This is incredible! I cannot believe you got such a perfect image with contact paper!

Please please post your Sully shirt too! And any others!

and... maybe... a tutorial? : ) I would love to see all of your stencils and the order you printed...

Sidenote: I'm trying to learn how to do CMYK screen printing - but... maybe you have inspired me to give spot color a second chance!

Just an idea - have you considered using white transfer foils? I thought they might give you an interesting effect.

So I'm sure there is a super easy solution to my problem and I'm just not getting it. But - if anyone has any idea on how to do this I will be so grateful!

I'm working on a project where I'll be screen printing HUGE sheets of plastic sticker backing film and/or paper sticker backing (I'm making stickers). I need to cut the sheets down to 4 inch by 4 inch squares - and they need to be "professional looking". My problem is I seem to be cursed with crooked cutting! So I think hand cutting with scissors is out. I have a little paper cutter (the kind where you slide the blade across the paper) but somehow that always comes out kinda curvy too.

Does anyone know of a better way to do this?

You could use wire but it would have a very different look: http://www.google.ca/#hl=en&cp=11&gs_id=1x&xhr=t&q=wire+name+necklace&pf=p&sclient=psy-ab&site=&source=hp&pbx=1&oq=wire+name+n&aq=0&aqi=g2g-v2&aql=&gs_sm=&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=47ae9ca12abe4e3f&biw=1280&bih=680

For those you can use pliers to bend the wire into the shape of the name - theres lots of tutorials online for those! I think they look pretty too!

But for a necklace to look like the one in your picture you're not going to want to use wire. This one looks like it was probably machined. To make it by hand you would need to get sheet metal and cut the shape out with a jeweler's saw. Alternatively you could try using a laser cutter service to cut the metal for you. You could also try using precious metal clay (it fires into silver or gold, etc.) but you would need to find a way to fire it. If you're not dead set on using metal perhaps shrinky dink plastic would do the trick for you?

If you don't want to invest in a lot of materials/tools using wire is probably your best bet! or shrink plastic!

as for attaching it to the chain - you can use 2 jump rings.

Tried Ponoko - they cut but won't engrave metal!
