Here is the original that I LOVE:

And here is my version
I used a 14" x 2" piece of scrap material, cut three slits almost to the top
Tightly braid the three pieces. I taped the one end to my table and braided.
This is the clasp I used.
I threaded the braid 1/2 way through the 1/2 of the clasp that has the lobster claw clasp.
Keeping the braid folded in 1/2 I took the smaller part of the clasp and threaded the loose ends through. Folding the fabric over the straight part of the clasp, I then sewed it together.
I then took some wire and wrapped around the sewed part to hold it together better and just because I liked how it looked!
