Ostrich/Peacock Herl/Pheasant Tail LOOP????

Recommended Posts

How is this even possible? It seems like everytime you try to put a tail fiber/feather in the loop they all fall out. Are there any tricks to this I am unaware of?

 

Is there a special way to place them in the loop (beside buying the $40 Magic tool)? Advice is appreciated.

 

THanks CC

Visit your family dentist and ask him for an old "Articulating Paper Holder". It's kinda like tweezers with an extra long nose, and the jaws are parallel when they're closed. Get your hands on one, and it will be clear to you how you can use it.

Good Day,

 

I am partial to bulldog clips one might find at the art supply store or office supply place. Also - a good tying wax for your thread to give just the right amount of tackiness.
