Weaving A Cross

April 13, 2009 | 2 Comments   

Today I am going to show you how to weave a cross. Usually most people would use palm leaves to do it. However, I would use a pandan leave because it gives a little fragrant and you can keep it in your handbag or drawer.

Step 1: Take a strip of pandan leave. You can split it into 2. Make a L shape with a little triangle in the middle.

Step 2: Fold the triangle downwards twice. You will end up a square covering the triangle.

Step 3: You take the left strand of the leave, move it backwards to make a loop and go through the pocket of the square. Tighten it to have a square pocket.

Step 4: Weave the leave through the pocket to make the vertical bar of the cross.

Step 5: Weave the leave through the back pocket to make the horizontal bar of the cross.

Wah lah…you have a nice cross. Adjust it to make it proportional.

Happy Easter to all!!!
