I find that the bigger the hole is in the washer, the easier it is to do this project, but it's not impossible to do this with smaller-holed washers, either. To start choose your embroidery floss - I liked the ones where the colors were variegated within the skein, so it wasn't all one shade of green, but that's a personal preference. You'll only need about half a skein of floss (at most) for this project, so you can cut that much off if you like (or use the whole thing and cut later - it takes longer and is more apt to get tangled, but then you know you have enough floss). Tie one end of the floss to the washer, and start wrapping it around. And around and around and around.
|This one still has a long way to go.|
When you get to the end, tie it off with a knot before you cut off any excess floss- it's a lot easier to tie it if you have extra string left over. You could also glue it, but that adds an element of messiness to the project that otherwise isn't there. I'm sorry I don't have a photo of this step.
|The one with the smaller hole took much longer than the other.|
Did you make one? How did it turn out?
