When I was learning this technique I tried to follow other instructions out there, but found it confusing at first, so I decided to make a step by step PDF for a Kumihimo Bracelet with Button Loop Closure that was clearer.
The pdf shows you how to make the eight cord Kumihimo braid using the disk and how to finish it with a Shank button and loop closure.
I was a professional seamstress for a men's clothing store for 10 years.
I sew, crochet, paint, tat, metal smith and teach jewelry classes at a local college. My husband and I teach Shag Dance.
