Thread: Whoopie!

  1. #1

    Whoopie!

    My material from DIY Gear arrived. I followed the vids here and made a set of Whoopies. As is usually the case the first one was harder to do than the second. They both seem to be good. Haven't hung in them yet. I also made two soft shackles.
    I bent a wire used for floral arrangements in half and used that as a fid. I bought a package of the wire from Michaels for a $1.89 it contains 20 wires 18"s long. It worked well. Now to do some mods on my new Woot.
