  8. Thanks for sharing, Vonna! I've made floss tags before, but haven't used the mat boards for mine - I really like the idea of using two grommets for the separate pieces - I've always finished mine, and added the grommets last. I definitely prefer your method!

  14. Hello Vonna!

  15. Thanks, here I thought I was an incompetent idiot since I was never able to master this technique. But it would seem I have been using the "wrong" tool all along: a grommet setter used to do in one step what the Crop-o-dile does in two steps. The one step process may be great for seamstresses working with one or, at the most, two or three layers of fabric but it doesn't work well [trust me on this]on the fabric/padding/matte board back & front of a floss tag. I usually use a very light weight bit of pellon interfacing [shirting weight]glued to the matte board to "soften" the look of my finished projects ... do you think this is part of my problem? Too many layers???

    In any case, I shall be buying a Crop-a-Dile the next time I am near Michael's ... I need to replenish my stash of DMC very soon ... working on a Teresa Wentzler BAP will do that!

  20. Love the floss tag and thank you for sharing your skills and knowledge. I love the idea of the sledding tunnel - how clever your people can be. When we lived in MN, my two build forts at each side of the end of the driveway and the whole neighborhood would join in for the 'fort' adventures.

    Have a great weekend.

  22. Oh thank you so much! I have been wanting to do one of these and was not sure where to start. I love your detailed instructions and know when I am ready even I will be able to complete it without a disaster. I sometimes hate to ask the other ladies in my stitching guild as they seem so talented and I fear they would think I was totally useless if I had to ask how. I just want to stitch up something real quick to do this. What a great little something for an exchange. Thank you again.
