I use heavy duty thread........just like regular thread. I tried the elastic cord stuff and it jut kept breaking. I really like the way I do it now.

I use waxed unflavored dental floss or fishing wire. The fishing wire can really tear up your fingers though until you get used to it.

IDK why it didn't work...maybe u have super strength I am pretty sure that the kind I have is just a package I bought at Michaels or something. I am going to order a bulk quantity of the 1/4"organza online.

I will try the organza again, but it didn't seem to work well for me.

I haven't had trouble w/ melting during baking. I baked at 225 for 25 minutes and all is fine. I think u just have to keep trying until u find something that works for you. There are so many different ways to do things but it ends up being personal preference. I think that this site and members are FANTASTIC for sharing their expertise. I am new to the forum and have had so many of my Q's answered. It has been such a blessing!!!

I use elastic thread but buy it in bulk at ctsusa.
http://www.ctsusa.com/_e/Thread_Stri...inner_One_.htm

This spool will cost you about $22 with shipping, but will last for thousands of bows. I have bought four spools in the last 3 years and make about 10,000 bows per year.

Where is everyone getting their embroidery floss? I'm getting mine online, but the shipping is outrageous!
