|I have three of these legs to make, then I'm off|
and running! I love trying something new!
I learned a few new tricks at the festival this year, I have been making braided rugs for a long time (I learned from my grandma at least 30 years ago) Anyway I hand fold the fabric in on its self while braiding, this can at times be frustrating! but these, can you believe are called braiders, pictured above, why have I not seen them sooner! Oh well better late than never :) Anyway these braiders can be picked up at most craft stores (this is what the lady demonstrating said) I have not been to a craft store yet to check it out. She said you slide them down as your braiding and they fold the fabric as you go. It looks like it will make folding the fabric much easier, cant wait to try! :) She was also using a thin flat needle, pictured below (I use a darning needle) she also said this makes it easier, I may or may not try this one.
