I don't see how you could do something like this with just dried hides. The only way they would be flexible enough for the twisting is if they were wet and if they were wet they would dry really stiff or maybe not dry good at all and get moldy or start to rot. You may could do something like Zass did a while back when when she broke a raw hide, but if I'm going to all the trouble of breaking a hide, I'd just as soon have it tanned.

That is what I thought too. Although fryer hides dry really flexible, I just cant see them working for this.

I wonder how it would work if instead of twisting one used leather glue and painted the strip before folding it over?
