No Need To Buy Boning or Rigilene Again !

No Need To Buy Boning or Rigilene Again !
Use Recycled strapping from packaging, It comes in lots of different colours and a few different widths. It's great to use for bag handles, strapless fitted dresses, bridal dresses, hoop petticoats, corset making that's just a few uses there are so many other uses.  So save some money and recycle, you can usually find heaps of it on any building site , look for where they are building a new house, it's used to strap bricks and other products, my sons brought a flat screen television yesterday and it had the strapping which was a little wider then most I have come across ,it will be great for stiffening bag handles. If any one else uses it please post and tell us what you use it for. In the near future I will make a few things that I will use it in and show you all, it is also great to use in the end of a fabric glasses case to keep the end closed. I have purchased boning in the past many years ago when I made myself a fitted strapless dress and believe me it's just as good and it's free and you are helping the planet by recycling, that's another win win win !
