Running a weekly goal to refresh or test new ideas.
Trying the sheath braiding technique for starting a new work.
- 3mm Tandy Leather Superior calf. Strands quantity 4, each 36″ folded in half for 18″ lengths with 8 strands around the key ring
- Started test with over under pattern (result was ugly around the key chain’s metal loop).
- Gives back 12″, with 2″ left over and a bit more on other side
- Time spent about an hour 10 minutes with several interruptions, about an hour braiding.
Finished braiding, but not feeding it into itself to create a handle loop…
Obviously, from the part at the key ring, this idea bombed out horribly.
