You might be saying to yourself... cord?
Ah ha. This is where we’re clever.
Remember that three inches of fabric we saved from
before? Cut that into three inch-wide strips. We’re
going to braid them together to make our cord! Tie your
strips together at one end and start braiding.
I started with fabric strips that were
about a yard and a half long, but after being braided,
they lost a little length. They were still long enough
to make a good belt, but keep this in mind depending on
what you’re looking for. If the fabric you bought is
shorter than this, don’t worry, you can braid in extra
length. If you’re feeling up to it, you can sew in some
extra length... but that would break our no sew rule! Oh
well. Desperate times and all that.
