    Apr 26, 2009, 4:10 PM - Need some help with Starkiller wraps. Advice or trade #1

    Hey guys.

    My sewing skills are pretty bad, and I am having trouble making wraps for my Starkiller costume. The wraps are suppose to be bull denium, but if you cut it into just strips it freys like crazy. I tried sewing it into a tube, bt the seem keeps rolling up on me. Does someone have a good idea how to make the wraps or be willing to make a trade of some kind for them?

    Cut the strips on the bias. They should fray less on the bias and be slightly stretchy, so they'll wrap more like an Ace bandage.

    The bias is the diagonal grain of the fabric.
