I could knot it and glue it, b ut I want it to look good enough that my teens would wear them in public. Are there any kind of plugs that would work? I don't want to use buttons, although that would probabaly work, but again, I want my finicky teenagers to feel comfortable wearing them in public.
Any ideas or tut would be very helpful.
I apologize! I realize you didn't want the knots and glue option, lol.
I do believe a nice square knot covered with clear-drying glue wouldn't be very noticeable. I think the more 'crafty' they look, the more likely they are to be taken as crafts, and not the run-of-the-mill store-brought brand =)
