Woven Earphones Cord

DIY Woven Earphones Cords | onelmon

So I was told by my brother how he had this one friend who owned a gorgeous looking earphones with the cords threaded with twines; and that’s the hint (though it feels like an order to me) that he wanted something similar. I didn’t have twines on hand so I went for these embroidery threads instead. Not knowing how to thread the cord as he described, I decided to do weaving while adding a little bit of colors as I did it :)

Ceritanya si adik punya seorang teman yang memiliki kabel earphone keren dengan kabel yang dijahit (???) dengan benang ikat (semacam tali craft). Jadi ujung-ujungnya si adik juga mau sesuatu yang mirip. Kupikir, coba buat saja deh, toh craft untuk minggu ini juga belum terpikir mau buat apa. Karena hanya ada benang sulam di laci meja, langsung saja mencoba membuatnya dengan bahan yang ada dengan tehnik menganyam karena sama sekali tidak ada bayangan bagaimana cara menjahit kabel seperti yang diceritakan oleh si adik :)

Step 1: Tie a knot at the end of each thread so that the thinner threads within them are kept in place.

Langkah 1: Buat simpul pada ujung setiap ikat benang sulam sehingga benang-benang tipisnya tetap pada posisi masing-masing.

Step 2: Apply a little bit of glue at the upper part of the cord. Pick 2 colors of your choice and stick them on the cord’s left and right side.

Langkah 2: Beri sedikit lem pada bagian atas kabel. Pilih 2 warna dan rekatkan pada bagian kiri dan kanan kabel.

Step 3: Get the last thread (the coiling thread) and start weaving with it.

Langkah 3: Ambil benang sulam ketiga (yang akan digunakan sebagai benang penggulung) dan mulailah menganyam.

Here is a drawing illustration on how to do the weaving (hope this helps!). Just let me know if you are unsure about the weaving steps, I’ll be more than happy to help you :D

Gambar di atas adalah ilustrasi bagaimana cara menganyam (semoga bisa membantu!). Bila ada yang tidak dimengerti atau kurang jelas, langsung saja bertanya tanpa sungkan-sungkan :D

Step 4: When you are done, tie a knot at the end. Repeat for the other two cords, the left and right earphones’ cords.

Langkah 4: Setelah selesai menganyam, buat simpul pada ujungnya. Ulangi langkah di atas untuk 2 kabel lainnya, kabel audio kiri dan kanan.

I decided to have the coiling thread in 3 different colors so each cord has different dominant color.

Saya putuskan untuk menggunakan ketiga warna sebagai benang penggulung supaya ketiga kabel memiliki warna dominan masing-masing.
