      Any way you like! By machine or hand is the most common way.

    I’m loving your web pages. Machine wrapped cords are great! I made three today and love the process as well as the result.
    I now have them hanging around my neck! Keep up your work. It is inspiring.
    Best Wishes,

    Brilliant. i love making my own cords too. I keep all my cottons etc and they go down the middle. I especially like using materials with loose weave as they add exyta dimension to the finished product(my way). But I always wondered how they were really made and its the satin stitch that I was missing out on that gave it the depth I wanted. so thanks for the tutorial.

      Your work is beautiful!
      What is a satin stitch?
      Also, when you use this as edging on your journals, do you have to put binding on the journal first or can you just attach the cording to the raw edge of the journal?

        Hi Linda – satin stitch is a narrow zig-zag stitch and is sometimes used for finishing edges. For these particular journals I don’t bind them, I finish the edges with satin stitch and then attach the cording. You could also attach the cording to raw edges.

    I would like to make some cording that shows the “lashes” on eyelash wool. Do you have any ideas please? Thank you for wonderful lesson on cording. Chris

      The only way to do it by machine is to sew with a longer length stitch and then manually pull out the outlashes.

    The boxes are just what I have been working on, I wish I had seen the tutorial several weeks ago. Love the idea of using them for embellishment and with the circular attachment. Thank you for the tutorial..
