Braiding, no really!

Well, my first new craft is braiding, yes really. I’ve never seen the cardboard or foam bases that are used to do this before, and it’s so easy. The quick cardboard one looked like this.

And in the picture below, it is the thinner pink coloured one in the centre. Then I tried the foam base with more slots and the other two are the results of that one. It can be a bit monotonous, if you are doing a longer braid but at least you can put it down and it’s do easy to see where you are when you start again.
Haven’t decided what I’m going to do with them yet but have already cut my own simple base and shown a friend.
Try it for yourself!
Oh, and there’s even a Braid Society! Lovely ladies (and a man) that I met at the craft show.
