Summer project: Making friendship bracelets

School’s been out for a month… you probably had enough theme-parking, swimming, sunning, and other outdoor activities. Now you’re looking for a relaxing indoor activity. You’re in luck! I have just the right activity for you – making friendship bracelets!

To get started, you’ll need the following:
Embroidery floss (like DMC or Anchor) – 2 or more different colors is preferred
A pair of scissors
A clipboard (or a clip and a book)
Beads (optional)
Your creativity… and your patience.

Getting started:
In order to make a bracelet, there are few things you should know first. The step-by-step instructions below was copied from Making Friends. I believe these images are derived from Klutz.
Basic Knots

Easy enough? I think so, too. Now you’re ready to make beautiful friendship bracelets!

It’s good to start with something easy. How about the Diagonal Stripes pattern? The step-by-step instructions belowย tells you to use 4-different colored threads but you can use two, three, five, or whatever you like! Just make the necessary adjustments.

Lucky for me, my partners in crime (the syndicate, if you will) are very gifted in this area, so I regularly benefit from their talents and have been able to pretty much resist the lure of the bead. Still, I really wanted to participate in this project! After a little searching around on the internet, I stumbled upon a forgotten classic: the friendship bracelet. […]
