Both flowers have been completed using my Hand Dyed Threads. The first using a Cotton Spiral, the second using a Very Fine Cotton. Both have been warped for extra thickness.
I created a zig zag braid.
Once you have finished the braid put a little glue across the raw edges BEFORE trimming. This will prevent fraying as you sew the petal together.
I put the thimble in so you could see the size of the flower. I made 2 braids. The second had more zigs before I zagged. I joined the 2 flowers together.
Then I added beads.
This is my second flower. Its a different pattern, but basically the same principle. Its roughly the same size as the flower above.
I've finished the braiding of a 24 bobbins braid completed on the square discs. Not sneak peaks yet. I want to finish the beads before I show it. I'll be away for a few days over Christmas, back Boxing Day. Hopefully I'll get it done by then.
Merry Christmas, Stay safe.
