The tools Measure and mark 1″ on both ends of your flexy roller. Note: Determine which length is best for you before you cut. My measurement may not be applicable to you. Cut off your measurement of the foam. Do not attempt to cut the wire yet. This is how it should appear after cutting the foam. The inner wire should be exposed. Now using your wire cutters, cut the exposed wire. This is how it should look afterwards. Make sure that the cut wire is protected by the foam. You do not want your head getting poked or hair getting snagged by it. Now take your darkly colored stocking of choice and cut it to be slightly longer than the flexy roller. You want the color to closely match the color of your hair so it is not noticeable. Note: The stocking was cut blunty across the leg meaning it is double sided. Is that understandable? I hope so. Roll the flexi roller in the stocking until it is completely encased. Take your needle and thread and sew the roller inside the stocking. It should result in looking like this (only neater). Now cut the ends. Make sure to not cut too closely because you are going to have to sew them together. Now do just that! Sew the ends on both sides of the roller. This is how it should look. Wamski! You got yourself a hair rat. Go H.A.M ladies!
