OK - I really like to use the thick Goody elastics from WM when I make my button ponytail holders, and I use the smaller ones for the piggy tail sets. Up to now, I have been removing the shank, putting in the elastic, and re-tying with wire. I was trying to put a set in a doll hair piggy (prop) and the elastic snapped. Now I can't do anything with that set.
If I just wanted to loop the elastics through, in case they break, they can be replaced, HOW IN THE HECK-EK DO YOU GET THE ELASTICS THROUGH THE SHANK???!!! I am dumbfounded! There is no way the big ones would fit and even the small ones won't go through folded over. Is this impossible????
