Bat Design Tutorial

1. Pick 2 different colors. (The example uses orange & black). You will need 4 strands of orange & 2 strands of black.

2. Align string, fold in half, and tie knot ½ inch from fold forming a loop.

3. Attach your ½ inch loop to MYFBM under the butterfly clip.

4. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9 & 10 (orange) & slots 3, 5 & 7 (black). You will have one extra orange strand & one extra black strand that will need to be cut close to your knot.
