Layered Voices -2

I have this 'wrapping twine' given to me from one of the other students when I was doing my city and guilds.

So, I chose these 3 colours (I also have red in this size and white a bit bigger.) because they will go with my fabrics.

First I made cord on my machine - using a foot that you can thread individual cord or thread through and when you stitch them with zigzag they become a multi-strand cord.

Then I plaited the cords I made to become braid I can use. One length will be the anchor thread for the net. The other will possibly be straps?

The different cords together give flecks of colour that tie the various fabrics together.
