Before heading off to last week’s Embroiderers’ Guild fair I grabbed some threads to do a braiding demonstration. Initially I had no clear plan about which braid I would demo. Fiddles around with a few different structures before deciding on the ladder braid.
This braid is so simple to do and lends itself to some pretty smashing embellishment. The holes that are formed are perfect for threading through beads, ribbon etc.
I’m not sure what I will thread through but I know it won’t be this gold cord. Wrong.
