Balearic sling tutorial
May 19th, 2013 at 4:52pm
 
Hi, guys. I'm making a balearic sling fibers braided tutorial. I made it for my friends from www.paleoforo.com (pardon about publicity). I added english instructions, thinking about you. I Hope you like it. Second part coming soon.

Great tutorial,

I really like your technique to separate the initial strands from each other. I can tell you I spent hours doing this Embarrassed

The nail trick also is great, that can be really difficult trying to get out the tangled fibres.

A very excellent video! Thanks for making it and posting it. I've had difficulties when trying to braid like that in the past, but with your instructions, I should have another try at it.

Great tutorial.  I got many hints from it, and if my roll of sisal  behave like that, and end up as fibers instead of powder (yes I have experienced that) I could make one.  I have braided many slings with 5-strand braid (mostly Chimarro slings) and I have braided slings using grass as fiber.  I look forward to part 2.

Really good video! Thank you for the time and effort!

I recently finished a tematatl-style sling using sisal for the first time. After seeing this video, I'm definitely going to try it again.

Hey guys, first thank you for your kind words. I'm happy that you like.

You can see the two part tutorial here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAllExyVw6I

By the way, I'm interested in whether English texts included are understandable for a real english speaker and understood in slings.

Third and last part soon.
