      I love it! I’m glad you’re going to make one!

  6. I want to make the mesh angel but how do you keep the mesh from freying so much?

    1. southerncrush says:

      It does fray. It’s mesh so it’s going to fray, let me know if you find a solution as I do not have one.

      1. I found out if you cut it with a sodering gun it melts it ant stops it from fraying.

      2. Mary Jo Chstman says:

        If u get a wood burner to cut ur pieces it will not fray-it worlkd

    2. Billie Ratcliffe says:

      Cut your pieces of mesh with a wood-burning tool. I have one dedicated just for mesh. It seals the mesh as you run your cut line.
      Zip–no fraying!! Thanks for all the beautiful ideas. Now get yer groove on..im hoping to find time this fall to do some😊..great therapy after a fire in our home 😳

      1. southerncrush says:

        I’m so sorry to hear about your fire! Yes, a burning tool is on my list of things to invest in! Thank you for being here–I appreciate you!
