In the bag: 12 lacing cards, 12 laces

- Allow the individual to figure out what he did wrong if he makes a mistake. Give hints and help in a way that will lead the individual to discover and correct the error himself, if possible.
- Ask the individual to feel for the hole on the back and lace without flipping the card over each time to see it.
- Try a whip stitch, the cord will enter each hole from the same side.
- Stitch a card while the individual stitches his card, giving him a model to watch.
