8 plait gone wonky…

I did a quick & dirty 8 plait whip this last week.  The braiding cuts really need work.  There’s no tapering on the strands. This is cut out of two squares which I rounded the corners on and then worked my way from the outside to the inside with an australian strander.  The leather is zora so working with anything less than 1/4 is pretty difficult and I had to jump the leather several times.

I’m not sure if the cuts are what are causing my issues with the braiding on the backside or not though!  See below and tell me what you think!!
