    Amsteel Whoopie Sling tutorial-ish.

    Hey folks, recently did a 2 part vid on my process for making a whoopie sling, and I thought I'd share! Hope somebody finds this interesting, and/or useful!

    Very useful. I wish I had seen this the first time I made some whoopies.

    I think that's a great tut, us. If you had a wire fid it would only take you a fraction of the time it takes you with the pen and tape. What I and some others use is a piece of 26-28 gauge wire doubled over, this will make it much faster. I do like that you used what you had on hand, though.
