Default Help!!! Need Shoelaces......

Does anyone know how to make the plastic tips on shoelaces? i have a customer who wants different colored FOE made into shoelaces....i had no idea what she was talking about but she bought some headbands for her baby then said she saw something like that but shoelaces and i am sitting here watching the Today Show and guess what i saw....SHOELACES made out of FOE....they said you tie hem once and never again because it stretches...so i better get a move on these before she finds them somewhere else!!!! TIA

Hi, this is my first post here, I've been lurking for a few days now and love all the information I'm getting!

For shoelaces I would use something called heat shrink tubing for the ends. You can get it in all kinds of colors and sizes. You would thread the FOE though the tube and then shrink the tubing with a heat gun to make it tight. I'd probably use some glue inside the tube to be sure it was very secure. Just google heat shrink tube.

A friend of mine makes these and that is what she uses. Thanks for sharing with this group. Welcome to HG!!! Glad to have you here.
