|I am a stitcher and the first idea was to braid "something" to close my embroidered bags. The big dream is to stitch a piece like the Elizabethan Sweet bags. The yellow needlecase has a "before Kumihimo" braid. The other bag has a marudai braid.|
|In the meantime I am making samples...from Rodrick Owen's book Braids: 250 Patterns from Japan, Peru and Beyond and Makiko Tada's book Comprehensive Treatise of Braids I: Marudai Braids 120 Diagrams.
This necklace uses Japanese Noro gimp.
