Braiding an unbroken piece of leather looks impossible but is really easy once you know the tricks.

My definitions (I don't know what the proper terms are so I gave them my own names) -

Point - The end of the leather farthest away from you
Bottom - The end of the leather closest to you you
Bow - The opening made when you push two strips to the side

Practice on a strip about 2'-3' long.  Longer than that and it gets really confusing as to what is what.  Shorter and it's not worth the trouble.

A leather strip about 3/4" wide is perfect.  Slit it into 1/4" strips being sure to leave 1/4" - 1/2" at the ends.

Work the leather bending it back and fourth until it's soft and flexible.


Step 1: Marking the leather

Hold a pencil or pen like this and use your finger as a guide while marking the leather into thirds.
Instructions are not clear.
Cool
I think I can probably figure it out, bu could you add a few steps for 5, and 7 strand weaving? Triple strand braids are neat, but the ones done with more add a certain wow factor to finished projects :-)
I've never done the 5 or 7 strand weaving. Can that even be done without the ends free.<br> <br> I'll try it since I would not have thought the 3 strand could be done.<br>
Can't wait to see how it works for you :-)<br> don't forget to update the 'ible with a finished project image or two.<br> <br> Found basic instructions.<br> <br> http://www.kingsmerecrafts.com/page52.html<br> <br> Looks complicated, but then again, so did the three strand version :-)<br> <br> Wonder if it'd work with a 7 strand? probably, but it'd be very tricky t keep stuff straight.<br>
Great link! I would not have thought it would work that way. Maybe I'll try it one day soon.
Very cool. I've been looking for a good braiding technique like this for RavingChild's Halloween costume this year, and this may come in very handy.
. Nice job.
