a Simple Fiber cord



here is a very simple fiber cord made with pretty yarns & fibers that we all have...


I used 9 strands of fibers/yarns in bright colors...this one is about 3 yds each...but any length will do...


take 3 strands & machine zig-zag (wide) together with a pretty thread---I used rayon---do this with the rest of the fibers-3 and 3-so you now have 3 strands of zig-zaged fibers---now I stitched them together across the top a couple of times---and than you just braid them together tightly! and stitch across the bottom to secure the braid...you can leave the top & bottom loose if you want a tassel-like effect...or bind the ends with cord or fibers and dip in glue for the finished look....easy-peasy!!!
