That's a nice braiding job.  I always have trouble transitioning between the cord to the cradle -- I get a round, concave pattern and have to add lots of extra loops to the outside strands.  Looks like you don't have that problem!

HELP!!!
My photos did not show up in the above post.


If you want to see your pictures, you should put above links between these tags:

[*img] [*/img] - must remove the stars

But this is no problem, we can see your pictures after clicking on the links. Nice slings! I'm curious how you attached the cords to the leather sling.

In the shape, structure and position of each stone, there is recorded a small piece of history. So, slinging them, we add a bit of our history to them.

Thanks Jurek

That worked out OK Wink

I attached the cords to the leather sling with small dabs of epoxy.  I read one time that prehistoricman had and used a form of epoxy.  It seems to hold leather very, very well.  Did you notice the cords are attached to the back of the cradle so that the shot doesn't encounter a bump?

Transitioning is a very difficult thing.  The slipperiness of nylon allows drawing up post transition even post post transition.  Keep in mind when nylon is wet its stretches and is even more slippery.

I braided this sling horizontally not vertically.  I'm just learning to braid vertically.  If you can do what you want to do horizontally do it, it seems much easier and faster.
