Default What do you use to sew with?

As of now im just doing clippies and korkers, until i get or make templates for other bows. I know people use different things to sew the korkers with and Im wondering what you feel is best? I know many of you have tried different things so Id like to know what you ended up sticking with. Ive heard of using dental floss, upholstery thread, and embroidery thread. Also, when you say embroidery thread do you mean actual machine embroidery thread or the floss? and if floss how do you do it?

Do you use the same to sew other bows as you do with korkers?

And Last what kind of needle do you use?

Thanks!

Bump! I would love to know to. Right now I'm using regular thread, but I think I might buy Upholstery thread if others recommend it.

WAXED DENTAL FLOSS! I won't make bows without it!

Also waxed dental floss, mostly because when you tie a knot on any bow it doesnt slip! Works great!

Wow. If anyone would be kind enough to post their brand (if it's not a close guarded secret!), that would be great.

I'm guessing you don't use the flavored (mint) ones.

Honestly, I just grab whatever they have at the dollar store. If they happen to only have mint flavoured, I still use it.

I use upholstery thread too. I've never heard of using dental floss, might have to give that a try.
