do you have the plastic laces?

gothicmama Tue 21-Jun-05 16:48:32

woolworths have a book on it - what is one anyway

oho, a scooby thread.
You buy the bits from some dodgy market stall for £1 and weave them together.
I've seen it done but not done it (children not quite old enough I suspect)
good luck with it then

theres a web site www.scoubidou

misdee Tue 21-Jun-05 16:49:16

hee hee - misdee, don’t go there unless you have 15 fingers on each hand and the patience of a saint
Make sure you get the right kind of lace stuff as I bought the "wrong" kind (well - it had the word scooby on it so how did I know?) After struggling for ages with the stupid little diagram on the back, my girl guide efforts went in the bin because the b@@@@er wouldn’t tie up, just kept undoing it’s slippery self. DD1 cried. I swore (under my breath of course... ) DD1 sulked for a while and then played with her barbies.
Never again
