    Help on Snakeskins

    Hi,
    Just wondering, and would love to hear from those who have made their own, if there is any information or patterns for DIY snakeskins. I would like to make it my first project before tackling an UQ. Need some practice. What is the best material to craft them from? Thanks everone.

    -Bill

    One of my We Don't Sew vids has a demonstration of the snake skin. It is early on, maybe vid 2 or 3.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I made a couple of sets. It wasn't too hard. I made the first set without the cable ties to hold open the wide ends. It was nearly impossible to use. So, don't make my mistake.

    I found a free pair of panty hose and cut off the ends... this has worked well enough until I get a chance to REALLY make a pair.
