    My Whoopie and continuous loops

    After reading many of these threads, I decided to make some whoopies and continuous loops, I think I did pretty good, it really isn't that hard, thanks for all the help from the post. 20130115_212914.jpg

    My order of amsteel should be here any day now and I'll be doing the same, any tips? Specific tools I need to make the job easier?

    Nice job done on yours.

    I'm guessing it's like a bead in that it keeps the main loop from burying into the bury.

    That's what I though. I have found a better solution is to bury a 2" section of amsteel where you have the tape. I do this to all my whoopies....no bead to break.

    I used a big washer for the bead on my diy whoopies. Not for the gram counter, but I like it.
