Tools and materials that will be needed: soaked in hot water, straw, wooden comb, scissors, a large needle, glue (in this case the best fit Torque), Threads.


More focus on the tool for weaving comb. Use wood because it does not bend the teeth, they are cheaper and straws with dry wood is removed just fine. The photo shows what I brought them out of the store, a little conjured with a comb turned them into a working tool.


The work begins with a break down of straw into two equal parts – then thatched tape. For this and take the needle eyelet to hook below the straw and cleaves it on the one hand, and then half pierce a straw sozhmav sharp needle tip at the fold and cleaves the entire length of the straw. It turns out the two straw tape.
