Okay! Were off to a good start now pass the aglet under the eye holes (look at the pictures if you don't understand) and pull it so that it is tight. Then pass the aglet through the hole directly across from it and pull it tight.

i found it useful in the weaving process to stuff a t-shirt or a towel into the shoe to not have it so floppy and to be a firm workspace
