Default Korkers .... Help Me :( :(

Ok so i had some korkers made for me... I decided to go ahead and try to make one korker bow...i was scared to death to even try cause they are all sooo pretty but i did... I have cut each one which took me a very long time LOL..and have strung them on thread including the very bottom straight piece....What do i do next??

Right now they are just on the table strung thru the thread ... Do i go back in the same or almost the same exact spot and keep sewing them one by one or what do i do? Its so puffy and fluffy(
i only have 24 pieces on there.. do i need to take some out?)
i am not sure i know how to get them like a half round ball or thats how they look like when you guys do them LOL..thats the only description i know to give...

Help me Please.. I would sooo appreciate it....

When I sew them I string them all on just the needle part. It's hard to keep them there but it you set the needle on the table or on a thimble it'll help .Don't let the korkers fall willy nilly on the thread as it'll mess up your pattern that you placed them on there in. Once you get all the korkers on there hold the bottom korker and the top korker between your fingers in a tight grip and pull all the way through. I then go back through the same spot about 4 or 5 times for stability finally tying it off at the bottom. I like mine poofy but You'll just have to play around with how many you like on there. Usually the smaller I cut my korkers the less I put on there. But the good thing is if it doesn't look right just cut the thread and restring. HTH!

I think it looks good! You did a bang up job. Usually when I finish mine if I think a kork looks too long or it looks odd I trim it up and reseal the ends. GJ!

Wow are those your first bottle caps?! Those are cool. Me gusta!
