I have started to use my kumihimo braids for different types of projects. This is my first kumihimo brooch.
This braid was already a finished necklace. It was longer than I liked, so I was about to shorten it when I decided to try something different instead.
I cut away the endcaps after I tied off the ends. Then I dipped these ends in a little Quik Grip glue.
I then sewed the braid into a circle and whip stitched a little bit of felt across the back to finish it. It is the sweetest brooch now!
I use my Dazzle-it kumihimo disk at least once a week. It is amazing that such a simple and inexpensive tool can be used to create so many different braids.
The center bead is from our semi-precious strand.
