Mounting tubular crin to hair falls

Post by Hybrid Doll » Mon Mar 14, 2011 12:08 pm

Hi, I'm new here, and I am jumping for eagerness to dive into the world of fall making.
I need to know the best ways to mount tubular crin to hair falls. I need them to be professional quality, can't risk them to slide off.
I need to decide wether I keep tieing them to hairbands, or start sewing them into strips of fabric.
I even thought of tieing them to elastic, cover them with strips of fabric, and then sew the fabric over the crin...
Obvious, I need help :i9:
Love, Hybrid Doll

I just tie bunches of crin together with rexlace and then tie the rexlace onto a strong hair tie. Works for me :)

My scalp is too sensitive for heavy stuff, so no rexlace for me, but it might work on the ones I want to sell.
Any suggestions what kind of knot to use?

Off to read tut now, thanks girls!

Rexlace doesn't actually add that much weight to it to be honest. I only ever use about 10-15 pieces per fall (30 strands total).
Just a simple knot does the trick!

Thanks for the knotting info sweetie!
And even 15 strands a fall is too heavy for me, I am HYPER sensitive :C
