i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach... as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning... *sigh* yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.
Want to make a friendship bracelet? I'll show you a little-known technique that lets even a complete beginner make beautifully braided bracelets. In 20 minutes from now, you can finish an intricately braided friendship like this one: The trick is using something called a braiding disc, or braiding loom. It's just a round piece of cardboard with some slots in it, but it makes bracelet-weaving a lot easier compared to the bracelet-making method described in most books
If you've mastered the tatted flower instructable, you're ready to learn a few new techniques. This necklace will help you learn split rings, josephine knots and clovers to create a wearable piece of tatted art. This necklace is a modified version of my Fleurette necklace. You will need basic needle tatting experience easily learned in my other instructable including the double stitch(ds), picots(p), rings(r), chains(ch) and joining. This design used size 10 crochet cotton and a size 5 tatting needle.
I was going to hold off on posting this, but I put the pics up on Craftster and the response has been, well, enthusiastic. I love this project and just can't wait anymore. **** COBI!! Do not read this post. Go play Flight of the Hamsters or something instead
So, a couple weeks ago I showed a glimpse of the knitting chart I was working on. I finally took the time to make a little tutorial and explain the way I did it. I hope it’s clear enough, or feel free to ask your questions ! ( Click for larger pics !! )
