Default How do you do your Korkers?

How do you make your korkered hair bows?

I have been laying fishing wire down and then laid them in the center of the fishing line and tied them. This can be hard sometimes when they get out of line.

I tried sewing them (stacking them on the needle) but I don't think i did a very good job.

I want my korkers to hold now that I have started selling them...but am wondering what is the best way.

The reason I use fishing line is because I can't find the wire that most people talk about.

I personally sew mine. I used to tie them but they just weren't as durable and they didn't seem to be shaped as well either. I use a regular needle...nothing extra long.....and I just place them where I want them and at the angle I want. I made some and the next batch I made I used 4 more korker peices and that made a huge difference in the shape.

When I was tying them I used l-bracets placed on a peice of wood to hold the peices before I tied them. There is a tute somewhere out there that tells you how but it's really simple.

Personally, I think sewing is the only way to go when doing korkers. I just do a few at a time instead of trying to push the needle through 30 pieces of ribbon. Before I start sewing, when I do the knot at the end of the thread (a heavy thread!) I make the knot about 3 inches from the end. That way, I can tie the ends of the thread together on the same side when I'm finished stacking them. They come out beautiful and tight every time. Definately toddler proof! HTH

I use table for support for getting the needle out. I even used my teeth to pull it out
After seeing Cynthia's korkers(the best!) i stopped making/trying korkers!!

This is exactly what I do too. I use a soft doll needle, which is really long, so that the korkers all fit on there.
