Step 1

Shoestrings for fun sneakers

Prepare 4 strings (the length according to your requirements, originally 50 cm, the string shortens by 12 cm when plaited). Start by stringing 5 rocailles onto one side of the string, then make a knot and tie all of the strings together with one knot.


Step 2

Plait the strings. Divide the strings 2 x 2. Place the outer string between the second two and return the string to its original position (from the inside). Do the same thing on the other side (alternate the left and right sides). Plait the strings and thread the laces through the holes in the shoe before reaching the end, make a knot, string 5 rocailles, make a knot and cut straight.

Cut the string into 5 x 15 cm lengths and bend them in half. Use a sixth longer string to wind around the 5 strings which have been bent in half so that you form a loop by lowering one side of the long string a little and then returning so that the eye of the loop is created. Start winding from the top and then thread the strings through the eye of the loop when they approach it. Even out the strings so that they are the same length. Thread 5 rocailles onto each string and tie a small knot. Connect the snap hook to the tassel with the two rings using flat-nosed pliers.
