In this issue, my article is all about things you can create by upcycling old tshirts! Perfect for Earth Day, don't you think? *smile* With tshirt I rag quilted a layout, made a cover to a mini album, created a scarf and ...drumroll please... designed a necklace featuring a Kumihimo Braid. This is what the following video is all about -- how to create the Kumihimo Braid.
Kumihimo means braid in Japanese. In the video, I will be showing you the classic 8 strand braiding technique using old tshirt. You can adapt this to use any fibre, yarn, hemp, ribbon, etc etc etc.... This one is going to eventually showcase a mixed media pendent (you'll have to stay tuned for that in a future post *smile*) Enjoy the video!! And don't forget to pick up your copy of the magazine next time you're at the studio!
Have a creative day!
