Wij hebben nu een video gemaakt (kijk onder instructievideo's) over het afwerken van deze draadjes. Misschien een leuk idee om te kijken? Succes. Tine

DROPS Design NL 08.04.2010 - 15:45:

Als je maar een paar naalden (ca 2-6) hebt tussen de strepen, dan kan je net zo goed de draden mee nemen naar de volgende streep. Dan hoef je niet steeds af te knippen en afwerken. Heb je een model, die niet in de ronde wordt gebreid, dan kan je net zo goed afknippen en later afwerken in de zijnaden. Gr. Tine

Wat is een goede manier om de draden af te hechten/de panden in elkaar te naaien. Normaal steek ik de draadjes terug door het breisel maar aan deze panden zitten een paar ""duizend"" draden, dit is onmogelijk veel werk bovendien zou het breisel er aan de voorkant lelijk van gaan uitzien. Wat is de oplossing hiervoor??
