Thick Kumihimo Braids

This new choker kumihimo braid is so lovely it does not require the addition of a pendant.

I used Dazzle-it rattail and cotton waxed cord for the main colours.  The super thick pink and brown braid I bought in a fabric store…it is meant to be used for curtain tie-backs.

Because the finished braid was so thick, I only partially inserted into the kumihimo disk slits.

The reason I wanted to make a thick braid was because we have extra large end caps sets.

 

I added a little Quick Grip glue to my braid edges and inserted them into the end cap where they dried perfectly in place.  Kumihimo braids can be made with so many different types of fibers.  There are many samples already on this blog in the KUMIHIMO category.
