From the first time I tried Fireline, I Hated it! My first project using Fireline became so hopelessly tangled and tied in knots that I swore I would never us it again!
I have since learned… Never say Never! Usually, when I have done that in the past, something forces me to do what I said I would not do.
That was the case here too!!
Little did I know that my Daughter becoming a pastry chef would inspire/cause me to use the dreaded “F” thread again.
Meghan loves to make pastries. She and I like to make cupcakes. They are easier to eat at a party and go faster than a cake usually does. We have seldom had to bring any home from any place we took them.
But how many can you eat?? I know, some will have not problem. But me, they go right to my waist and hips. So I decided to make a tealight cover so I could have cupcakes around all the time.
With all the wonderful fragrances in candles now, I can even have these smell like cupcakes if I choose.
The problem is… I needed a thread that would not melt but was still transparent. The choice was obvious. I had to try working with Fireline again.
As you can see, I was successful. And I learned a few things along the way.
Tommorow, I’ll share some tips I learned from re-thinking Fireline.
