Does anyone wanna know how to make a tube bead suggie bridge? If so I guess I can get my booty going and make one laugh (I don't have pictures of it in progress and it's too hard to just explain LOL).



They can be made to any width desired.. 1 bead wide, 2 beads wide, 3.., 4.. you get the picture LOL.

Connie, It is an original idea as I have never seen this type of toy around, not here at GC or on EBay or on any1s website or just plain Internet and I have been in the Glider Community for over 10 years (since 2001). I did not copy this off of anyone. Also the name is original as well.

I offered for anyone to make them for their personal use, Never did I use the term forbid that. I am only stating that (as of may 29th) this is my idea to sell


Liezl, please DO make them!! I would love to see the spin you put on them smile (must have pics) I'm sure the 1s you make will be AWESOME

I want to, but I want pics, so I'll be waiting for those, even if it's just a finished product picture that I can use with your instructions. thumb

In part one of this someone asked how to make a pom pom that the strips didn't get pulled out. What I did was cut fleece like I was making a fleece vine,(but not sewing in the middle) and the rolling it up, taking another strip of fleece, tied it in the middle in a double knot.Then use whatever you like to hang it. You get a great pom pom and the middle is tied with the same fleece so the ends blend in with the rest of the pieces.

Thank you Amber, I missed that question. I do the exact same thing with the poms, take a strip of fleece, tied the middle really tight and a double knot. thumb

Holly your name of the chipettes was for sure an original and the things I have been making for yrs do not look at all like what you posted...I was just pointing out that making toys using the chips was not original. I usually pick out the red ones por the black ones to use when i am making things with black and white themes...the black and white chips make excellent polk a dots!!!!

I have to say I've found these tutorials to be very useful laugh I've made quite a few toys so far, for my upcoming baby girl -- and I'm extremely pleased with how they came out! smile

The only problem is now I have wayyy too much extra material left over @_@

They don't eat them, but some will chew on them. They are a pretty inexpensive toy that is disposable. When they get chewed on, just stick new ones in there! smile

Great toy idea!!
