Raffia Weaving update

So I was holding the two woven pieces while sewing on some embellishment when it bent in half along the sewn edge. "Hmmm 3D" thought I. "Chief's ceremonial stick?"




So out came the weaving kit again and I wove a third panel





Embellishment now taking place on this new panel...the end is in sight, honest!

Ah, but do you want a triangular cross-section stick, or a square cross-section...? I recommend triangular, because not only will that mean that the end is still in sight, but if you want to lie the piece down a triangle will make for a more stable piece.
