Ellipses. An ellipse is a circle in perspective. The viewing angle is referred to as the degree of the ellipse. Think of the degree as how “open” the ellipse appears when sketched.

DIY Friendship Necklace

We promise they are super easy to make and the perfect way to pass the time during those long summer roadtrips. To make a 2-tone necklace, cut a long piece of rope and wrap two different colors of embroidery thread around its own bobbin. Tie a starter knot along with the two colored threads you are using, leaving at least 3 inches of slack, Tape down the slack to a flat surface or safety pin it something that will help keep it in place (feeling nostalgic yet?). Lay the color that isn’t being used (shown here in purple) in your left hand, along with the rope, and hold them taut. Take the active color (shown here in red) in your right hand, pass it over the rope, loop it under and back through the opening. To alternate colors, simply put the inactive color (red) in your left hand and the new active color (purple) in your right.
