wide braid trim

clairezbo | Posted in General Discussion on

I was wondering what you would do with the end of a wide braid trim. It is inserted into the seam of the pillow. Would you cut the braid and glue it??? I don’t like the looks of just crossing it over at the end.

    In some cases you can unravel a little of each raw end and then sort of reweave the two ends together diagonally for a short distance, ending with the raw ends hidden in the seam.  The main thing this does is to get rid of the attention-getting excess bulk you would have by lapping.  In many cases it's not very noticeable, but it won't work with all braids.  There are a lot of books on pillow-making that give good illustrations of how to do it.

      well, I was thinking about that, kind of like splicing rope.

        I don't know how to splice rope...but splicing sounds like a good way to describe it.
