Thanks islander727, it was your swap that inspired.
Thanks for the compliment Islander,Flats, & Hatchet.
I updated the SBS to include Jo-Ann's item #'s.
The Forest color is a blend of dark and light green and some white. I separated out the light green for this pattern.

Not sure what colors you have but FYI, the 3/8" E-Z Body Tubing  can be substituted with Pearl Darice Mesh from the craft stores.

Very nice looking pattern.  Walmart also has the body material.  I will have to try that one.

Thanks for the compliment FR and utyer.
Didn't know Walmart carried the Darice Mesh Body material.
I know it's sold in at least 13 colors.

Another way to use the body material is to wrap it around the hook shank like Bills Bodi Braid and coat it with epoxy or a UV adhesive.
Tied here with a Mustad 3366 sproat 2/0 hook.

Good to hear you got some yarn and sounds like at a good price too.
Thanks for posting I'll have to check out my Walmart to see if they are doing the same clearance.
Did you get any other good colors?
