Make cord from silk rippins.



Or fabric can be used. Rip silk about 1cm wide. you can buy it made from Sari silk like I did. Variegated thread in the machine, top and bobbin. Set on wide zigzag and sew while twisting the rippins. May need to gently pull from behind.

Use cord for purse handles, to make necklaces, or to couch onto art collage.

Now don't laugh, you get the idea.
