Default I need some Korker help!

I've been trying and trying... but I can't get them to look nice and rounded, they just lay flat. Is there a trick as how to assemble them so they nice and round?

Are you sewing or tying them?? That makes all the difference in the world. I use to tie mine and they were terrible, I didn't think so at the time. Now I sew them and they are so nice. HTH!

I tried tying them but couldn't get them to stay straight while I tried. I ended up sewing through the center, but they just don't look good.

Here is the last batch. They are just so flat! I tried "fluffing" them and it didn't do much good. I really want the nice, round snowball look. Maybe I need a larger dowel rod? Would that make a difference?

After taking mine out of the oven, I spray them with hairspray and then sew them in the center. They hold their shape very well and look full. I like the hanging them upside down idea...just might try that, too!

Try adding a few more ribbons. Mine used to be flat and I added more ribbons that made them a little more full and round.
