    I just purchased a pattern for snap happy bags, by stitchin' sisters and it calls for bendable thread by sulky.
    Do you feel that any thread would be alright?
    Has anyone made these and if so what type of thread did you use?
    Thanks for your input ;)

    doesn't all thread bend?
    i think you meant blendable- which would simply be recommended so it blends into the fabrics and doesn't stand out- like a contrasting thread would- but you can use any strong sewing thread you want...it's your project.

    I am making them as gifts for Christmas. So far have 20 made. Love them. Am using fabric to match each persons personality. And some times I use contrasting thread, not blendable to make it more interesting.

    The Sulky Blendable threads are variegated, and very pretty!

    I was just on the DMC website and they have a new thread that has a memory... I thought this was referring to that? Apparently, you can use it to embellish cross-stitch, embroidery, etc... even quilts used as wallhangings, etc... I saw one example of a girl's face with curly blond hair coming out in all directions... They mentioned 3-D embellishments...

    interesting!...
