When you do korkers, do you use quilting thread or regular thread?
Also, doooo any of you ever use your microwave to dry them? So like if you add a bit of starch, have you ever thrown them in the mircrowave for a final touch for 15 or so seconds?
Ok, now, keep in mind.... when I tell you the following, I am new to this. I "tried" putting a grosgrain ribbon on a dowel and sprayed it with a touch of starch and put it in the microwave... low and behold, I look over, and it's smoking.
the middle was melted and black (not the dowel, the ribbon apparently). lesson learned.
I did figure out that I didn't have enough starch on my korkers, and that is why they weren't turning out well. I am making my own korkers now! I just started Thursday or Friday and I can't believe how easy they are to make (the korkers) and put together, now that I have the right amount of starch!
