l recently learned how to make spaghetti straps. Spaghetti can be used as straps for a dress or blouse (duh!) or as a tie for a casing, applique onto a garment, and I'm sure for hundreds of other applications. Making sturdy and thick (as in fully stuffed!) 1/4" spaghetti isn't all that hard, but it can be a little tricky to start. It's difficult to fit 1 1/2" of fabric into a 1/4" tube! This tutorial will show a little tip that will make it easier to start the turning process of the spaghetti strap tubing.
The tutorial and more is also on my "blog":http://uglycutedesigns.blogspot.com/2011/03/spaghetti-strap-tutorial.html
