Hi,

What kind or brand was the "clump" yarn you bought? I've tried McFly foam and a bunch of others but have the same problem as you when it comes to proportional size. In a pinch, I've used those little yarn "pom poms" from a arts & crafts store with pretty good success. Build a thread base, push the barb through the middle of the pom pom, add a little Zap a Gap to the thread, and slide the pom pom up over that. Presto, you're done.

I've tried all different recipes, but haven't found one that's easy for me to get the yarn to flare correctly. Anyone found a "no brainer" they'd like to share?

Thanks,

Phil
