Very cool, but something I can not talk and create at the same time.
|You can purchase the disk, nylon cord, & plastic bobbins |
at your local hobby shop.
The silver end caps I found at my local bead shop.
|Once finished, I threaded the loose ends through the cap. |
Then I unraveled & knotted each end.
This takes some practice. I still continue to find I'm off count & I made the most simple braid listed. I had to repeat in my head 'left - left, right - right'...as I wanted to go right - left and vise versa. Tension was tough to keep with the nylon cording but I wanted something super durable as I plan to carry this purse for a long long time! Oh, and a pro at this mentioned one day...'it stretches'. So while I was braiding, I pulled.
In total, it's worth the effort to learn this. My head is full of many applications for this braid down the road on future projects.
