Thanks so much :)
funny i shop from intercal every week and i never thought to look for anything on their site other than mohair lol
im not sure what size it need, so this is confusing, i only use 1" and 1" 3/4 discs, they seem to have the same hole size
i will try Lowes
anyone have a pic of one so i know what to look for? intercal had no pictures of them
I'm getting tired of using cotter pins, they are a pain in the butt! lol I bought the cotter pin tool which is worthless.
I see people use a screw and nut? or bolt? Is this something i can buy at a hardware store?
Can you tell me what exactly its called so i know what to ask for?
Thanks so much
I am half way through finishing a bear with a curly matted semi sparse 1" Mohair. I brushed it out and it looks beautiful brushed, nice and fluffy, but it doesnt last long, it falls flat pretty quickly and then i have to brush it again.
Is there a trick to making it stay nice and fluffy? without having it fall flat on me?
Thank you all so much :)
So i only dart the gusset? on each side of the gusset, on the wider sides?
This is my latest girl, this is the first time i didnt use a pattern and did my own, her body came out a bit smaller than i intended, but a dress hides it
This is before i knew about the darts, so she came out a bit triangle..it suits her, but i would like to have rounder heads in the mix also :)
I'm new to this too, and i chose traditional cotter pin joints with the hard board discs basically for longevity. I have some bears from 1905-1910 that are cotter pin jointed and if they can hold up for that amount of years im sticking with them..even though they are really hard to do.
With plastic, i dont believe they will outlast cotter pins, but i make bears for shelf use only, not for play..well accept by me
