I know some of you sew them together, do you put each piece on a needle and then when your done,wrap the thread around a few times or do you tie it like normal them run a needle through it a few time.?
Hi, I use elastic cord, the kind that they use to tie shoes together at the store so that they don't lose a pair. I also use at least 30 - 40 2" pieces and my bows turnout pretty fluffy. After I tie it, I pull the ends, slowly and carefully to make it look even OR I just trim the ends with sharp scissors. When I finally like the way it looks, I use a stiffener (sp?) spray I bought at Michael's to keep the shape. I hope this helps.
