This beautiful braided appliqué will look great accenting the top scallops on your shafts or accenting the finger pulls. Use your imagination
Bruce Grant, in his book "Encyclopedia of Rawhide and Leather Braiding" copyright 1972 Cornell Maritime Press, Inc. demonstrated how to make this one sided appliqué.
However, this tutorial describes a two sided version. This version looks nice if your finishing the insides of your boots. Or you can use this appliqué on a set of mule ear pulls.
The drawings below will show you each step in making a two sided lone star appliqué.
Notice that when the appliqué is turned over, the hole Numbers on the right side will be on the left side.
As an example, hole No. 2, will be on the right side in the front view... but on the left side in the back view.
