I have featured British kumihimo designer, Pru McRae's work and books (see below).  She has many tips and tricks with kumihimo. One of her latest free tutorials is how to embellish braided kumihimo cords with thread or ribbon.

As Pru says in the tutorial, you can add decorative thread or ribbon after braiding especially if you have limited or expensive material like gold thread or delicate ribbons. It also means you can complete the basic braid quickly as you are not having to slow down because of delicate materials.

Another benefit to adding post-braiding is being able to place the decorative thread in set areas , perhaps on the outside only so it is always visible.

Pru demonstrates her innovative disc use which is available from her website, Prumihimo.
