Yours are pretty close. Definitely way closer than anything I've been able to accomplish. Thank you also for the free advice about using cotton or something not slippery to practice. I think that is actually great advice! The satin can be a bit of a bugger. I'll have to give some serious thought to just how badly I "need" to learn how to make these. I'm only doing them because I think they are pretty and would like to be able to make them, I don't sell stuff, so I'll have to weigh that against all the other stuff I "need".
Thanks for the advice and the link tho!!!
