Step 1: Tools and materials you will need:
four 5 cm thick and 28 cm long strips of cloth (can vary according to foot/ankle size)
four bits of Velcro
couple of meters of paracord
some extra cloth
any other decorative material you wish to use.
Step 2: The ankle band
(You can use two colours for each pair of strips and make the product reversible.)
Fold 1 cm on all four sides of strips and stitch to form seams.
Place the strips back to back and stitch together.
Attach a piece of Velcro to the left extremity of either face of the strip.
Stitch parallel lines along the length of the strips to secure the band and give it a classy finish.
Repeat the process with the other pair.
Step 3: The braid
I suggest you do simple triple braid , its almost as effective and is much easier.
Step 4: The decoration
Pinch the four corners to form a sort of button.
Stitch the beads on in patterns.
I encourage you to do your own decoration!
Step 5: Now for the assembling
Place the buttons in the middle of the band.
Slip the braid between the band and the buttons.
Stitch the three firmly together.
