I am so proud of this bracelet! I didn’t think that less than 12 hours after my first attempt that I would be able to show you something that looked this good…so quick! I took me one hour to complete the braid this time!
My rattail colour choices are inspired by something I already made.
This fabric brooch is very sweet. It needed a matching accessory. I am so glad I picked up every colour in the Dazzle-It rattail line. I never know what palette I will be working with.
Once again I set up my square disk using the instructions John Bead provided.
But this time I did something extra. Lilla at John Bead reminded me that I really needed to weigh down the strand as I braided it to keep it from getting curved or uneven. There are lots of things you can use for a weight; a bag of pennies or even a heavy fishing lure. I chose this brass cat paper weight.
This time my braid is excellent! I give the brass cat all the credit for my success. My knots are so nice and tight and my edge is straight!
