When we are tasked with giving a demonstration to 200 kids in three hours, we may not get our choice of thread. Sometimes we are provided with thread, sometimes it comes from a church or school’s stash, and sometimes we are gifted with thread that is not ideal. Because this happens, we have a workaround for dealing with sub-par thread.
Most of the patterns in the "Fast Projects for Small Hands" section are small and require stiff threads. Limp thread or projects that curl up are the largest problem. When proper thread is not used, we will put the item into a badge or button. Check out the book for more details on the setup and threads we use for demonstration!We have created a few templates in different colors for you to use for your children's lace making events, although you may need to shrink or enlarge them. The rectangular templates are designed for a 3.5" x 2.25" pinback nametag, and the circles fit into 2.25" round buttons.
