I bought a load of this faux suede cord, because I got excited by the colours. I do that. I have piles of fabric that I got excited by and couldn't resist that have sat on the shelves for years.
Anywho I spent the day on youtube watching tutorials and practiced various braiding techniques and ta-da! Very happy with the results, especially that one on the far right.
It's so therapeutic, I could sit there plaiting and braiding all day, and the more the merrier I say, I just love me some arm candy.
