Hey!!! When Martine and raels said that they had trouble getting the mouse to the cheese, I tried it over. THEY ARE RIGHT....I can't get this mouse to the cheese either.... When I was doing it, I was going over a solid line...It's probably not worth telling Dainty Stitches. Most people probably don't use this for a marble run...
This is what I do. Start at the mouse. Go right, left, right, left, up, up left, left and a bit down, right and to cheese.
I cannot get the mouse to the cheese
I gave the answer. It works for me, anyway.
I think I'm a bit stupid I can't reach the center or the cheese and I'm usually rather good at these.
This is just a small picture. I have a good size piece to work with. I gave the solution that works for me. I would never, never call you stupid. I think you are one very clever lady...
You have a great imagination!
I just took a design that Dainty Stitches created, and my work is not satisfactory yet, but it's such a neat idea that sgilette suggested that I hope to keep trying...
Very good idea, what about a felt or fleece underlay and a clear platic top so you can see the bead or marble move through???????
Hey, that's a thought. I wonder, though, if the marble will glide as smoothly through the plastic. Maybe sheer chiffon, organza...lightweight cotton??? I think the fleece is more flexible. It would be fun to brainstorm with you I think!!
Here is a quilting square that might work. Have seen these in the round also. You might want to look through simple quilting designs for inspiration on this project.
Wow... I am not a quilter..yet. I never ever thought about that. Marvelous. I'll try it. Thanks a bunch!
Thank you. That's a neat little heart!
Neat idea. I have some silver small balls that would work perfect. Think they are ball bearings.
Yes, that sounds like a great solution. I would only suggest that you use fleece rather than felt. At least, my felt was too stiff.
Sewmom sent me this link that looks like a design that might work. Scroll down the page to the maze. It is a free design.
Thanks for the link.
Very cute! It is too complex of a design for a marble. I actually want to run gumballs through it. I am a kindergarten teacher and think this would be fun as a reward. (sugarfree of course)
Gumballs!!! Wow, what a neat thought. I love it!
Very interesting idea~
I had never heard about it before. I think it's interesting, too.
How sweet it is:):)great job give yourself a hugs from me lol
Great idea. Someone will have fun with this.
I hope I can work out all the kinks.
Neat experiment - I like your style!
Thank you. The feeling is mutual.
HOW fun is that?
Yes, It looks like fun to me,too.
