Please note that I am going to use inches and not centimetres in this tutorial as I use a quilters rotary cutter and ruler to cut my pieces and they measure in inches. The finished width of this braid is 1 3/4 inches.
In my example my widest strip is 1 3/4 inches wide. The middle strip measures 1 1/4 inches wide and the centre strip measures 3/4 inches wide.
The length measurement depends on the project you have in mind or your fabric limitations.
Using the fabrics face upwards, lay the middle width fabric over the widest one and stitch it down along both of its edges. I have used a zig zag stitch but a running stitch or other decorative stitch could be used. A hand stitch could also be used such as a running or blanket stitch.
Lay the centre strip down face upwards on top of the braid and sew it down as before.
The finished braid.
A braid without additional decoration and one with added lace which was attached with a running stitch.
