Default Re: Was hoping someone could help me figure out what I doing wrong with my KORKERS!!

Are you stitching in the middle of each korked length of ribbon...say it is a 2" piece the needle is going in at the 1" mark? Somtimes that can make them floppy if you are sewing at the ends instead of the middle.

One other thing might be that once they are sewn together you have to go back and make sure that the curls are not nestled into each other so thay look full again. Once I fluff and seperate them I usually give them a light spray with a fabric stiffener.

Those are a few possible thoughts. More than that I am not sure what to tell you. Are you able to post a picture of them so it can be critiqued from there?
