Plaited Straps…

Plaited Straps…

Right now I’m finished up my last project before I head out of town for a couple of weeks to perform my show in California.  I am helping out someone that is restoring a bag and needed someone to recreate the plaited straps.  Here’s what one of the straps look like:

This was an unusual pattern, where it over two on opposite sides and checkerboard on the other two opposite sides.  Also this strap didn’t have a core.   Between it being hollow and the pattern it gave the original strap a rectangle like profile.

My version of it has a core and is much more round looking.
