Reply To: Questions, Comments, or Photographs for Discussion on Baby Takadai


Before taking the braid off the Baby Takadai, you need to decide whether you want a straight edge — ideal if you want to make the braid into a jewelry piece — or not.

Use some strong string to tie a temporary knot on each side of the braid and take the braid off the baby takadai.  Lay the braid flat on some wax paper or something similar.  Use glue or Frey Check to seal the last couple of rows on each side or on a straight line from selvedge to selvedge.  Once dry, flip over the braid and repeat on the other side.

Cut the excess material once dry
