( at least that is what happens to me.)

Good Luck and Happy Krokering!
I am still new at this and am a little confused. What is saddle stitch (a kind of ribbon??) and I am using grosgrain should I bake them then take them off the dowels and let them air dry? I think anything is worth a try at this point...It is so frustrating.

Ok, saddle stitch is ribbon that is a thicker grosgrain and has a white stictched looking boarders. This kroker that I made is made with it.

i believe it might be the ribbon. i had some ribbon similar to it. it is a shiny grosgrain with polka dots and it did the same. i make krokers with a better quality ribbon and they are just fine.

Seriously? It can be washed and retain its curls? That is just what I needed to know...I want to add some Korker to an outfit for Xmas and need to know what to tell the customer. Is this right?
Thanks for your help.
