Can you give me a hand with something? After looking at prices of hemp and bamboo inserts, I think I'm just going to make my own. I'm still a CD newb, so bear with me!
This is the website I order my CD supplies from. What would you order?
I don't have a serger. Think I can get away with just stitching or zigzagging around the edges rather than turning and top stitching? I have a sewing pile 50 feet deep right now and would love to knock them out as quick as possible. I know they might fray a little around the edges, but that's not really a huge deal to me.
When I made Kaiden's hemp inserts, (I think I bought from Celtic Cloths) I remember it cost $28 for 2 yards of french hemp terry (shipping included) and I got 20 three-layer inserts out of it that were roughly 4 x 11 after shrinkage, with extremely little leftover material, just thin little strips I couldn't salvage for anything.
With those I used a stitch that has 2 paths of straight stitches with a zigzag stitch between the two and didn't topturn. They did fray, but I just cut that off and they were fine after that.
I have the material, I just need to get to making Kaiden's new inserts. I plan to do the same thing as before as far as sewing except make them bigger in size and only 2 layer so they dry faster and I have more options on how to fold them.
