Cords and a Hat Band
Orange isn't my 'go to' colour, but it happened that I'd got a bundle of threads with no other particular use, so, as shown here, I used some of them for wrapping to make this thick cord.
I've also used braid circles, finger knotting, plaiting, zigzag over sewing and all sorts of other threads along side these in order to make lots of different cords.
Next week I aim to find ways of joining some of them in order to make more substantial braids and trims - or at least, that is the plan!
After stabilising it I added hand stitching in two different variegated threads and a scattering of beads.
I'm off to hope for a return of grey skies and more moderate temperatures, and to think of more cunning cord making plans! I should, of course, be making the hat for this to be the band of!
