Martenitsa Bracelet – the KUMIHIMO Technique We sent our baba Marta to Japan – we made a bracelet martenitsa with the kumihimo technique. As we didn’t have the original kumihimo disk, we made our own and the result was quite impressive. It’s pretty, it’s easy enough for kids – and you only have to show them how to move the strings along the circle (count 1, 2, 3 and move to the empty slot). Paracord Survival Bracelet After the positive response we had with The Magic Braid, we decided it would be fun to combine my pictures into a “mini tutorial”. For this project I will be using about 7ft of paracord to make survival bracelets for the kids interested in surviving the great outdoors! These bracelets are easy to make and a fun project for hikers and campers of all ages. Typical uses include attaching equipment to harnesses, as strapping to avoid losing small or important items, tying items to vehicle racks, securing tents and tarps, tourniquets, etc. Use a flame to melt the ends of the paracord to keep your bracelet from fraying.
