I'm going on a safari and I am bringing Kumihimo!
One of my favorite things to do with my son in California is to go wander the San Diego Zoo: Safari Park in Escondido. So much inspiration! This pattern includes four different animal prints; Giraffe, Cheetah/Leopard, Tiger and Zebra. The giraffe pattern was the stepping stone for this series as they are my son's favorite animal of all time. The giraffe pattern is differing sizes of spots, not a single touching the other, separated by thin tan lines, just like a real giraffe. The Tiger pattern differs slightly from the Zebra in that it has a bit more orange space between the black stripes as is found in the pattern on most tigers.
The jewelry pictured in the listing are examples of items made using the tutorial and are not part of the listing.
The tutorial package is five files that include everything from DIY Kumihimo Weight instructions to three different ending techniques!
1. Read Me First - This file will give you a Brief History of Kumihimo and some Important Terminology to know. The most important part of this file is the DIY Kumihimo Weight section.
2. Kongo Gumi – Fiber Only and Beaded
If you are new to Kumihimo this would be the second file to look at. This will cover the basics from Kongo Gumi with Satin Cord to Beaded Kongo Gumi.
3. Kumihimo Endings – Glue On and Attach a Cone
This file contains two similar ending techniques. These techniques start with an unbeaded section of braid. The specific supplies and tools are listed for each technique.
4. Special Start Kumihimo Ending – Bury a Wire Loop
This ending has special starting instructions and if selected can not be changed to another ending once started.
5. Tutorial Specific Supplies and Loading Chart.
This file gives you the specific supplies for the pictured pattern and the order in which to load beads on each element. If you are familiar with beaded Kumihimo and have your own ending technique you prefer you can skip to this file.
