Friendship Bracelets 2
If you know how to do a fishtail braid to your hair, then you pretty much know how to make this bracelet. But for those of you who don't know about the fishtail and those of you who are curious about the logistics of my specific bracelet, well, read on! You will need embroidery/ friendship thread in various colors, some tape and a bead! I used 9 strands of thread in 9 different colors. I twisted this top part so it doesn't get all tangled later. Where you twisted the top part, tie it around your finger. Then tie a knot. I'm now taking one of the strands and tying it around the other, almost like a tie. Then pull the end through the loop you've created and pull into a knot. Tape the top down to keep the bracelet stable. Star by grabbing one color from the right side and pulling it to the middle. Pull the same color from the left side. Add the piece from the right side to the left group of colors. Now take the color from the left side and pull it to the middle (over all the other strands.)

5 Bracelets in 10 Minutes Today I would like to show you 5 different techniques to make some nice and easy bracelets. I wanted new bracelets and a lot of them so I made these very quickly. The best thing about these bracelets is that if you're crafty you'll make them for free because they can be made with what you have in your stash:left-over pieces from other DIY projects, little pieces of ropes, some yarn and so on. These bracelets are quick to make and you can have fun making them in every color! Let's start! Yarn bracelet : I made a tiny loop with the rope, blocked with thread and needle and then I just wrapped the colored yarn around. Crystal bracelet : I made a loop with the rope and blocked it with thread and needle then I put the crystal chain over the rope and I wrapped the yarn around both. Ball chain bracelet: I made a loop with the rope and blocked it with thread and needle then I put the ball chain over the rope and I wrapped the yarn around both.

Friendship Bracelets 1 Macraméd friendship bracelets were all the rage when I was growing up in the eighties. All the girls at my school would obsessively make them for one another in a dizzying variety of colors, widths, and patterns. It's amazing, thinking back, that such young girls could make such beautifully intricate accessories. I, of course, tried my hand at making them as well. I would ride my bike down to the five-and-dime store and pick out the most sophisticated color combinations of embroidery floss I could find, but when it came to the actual macramé I never got beyond plain stripes. Fast forward 20 years: Purl Soho started carrying DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss in every conceivable color (including fluorescents!

Valentines Friendship Bracelets Last summer I not only conquered my childhood fear of making Friendship Bracelets, but I also developed a new appreciation for them. They’re simple to make and cute as a can be, but most winningly, they really are great tokens of friendship. So cheerfully reminiscent of childhood and its open declarations of best-friends-forever, friendship bracelets are such a super way to let someone know you’re thinking about them. All this adds up to the perfect Valentine’s Day project! This time around I was a little more ambitious, creating adorable patterns of hearts and arrows, perfect for the holiday!

Woven Friendship Bracelet i love the summer friendship bracelet trend that i keep seeing in blog land, so i thought it would be fun to share with you another way to weave a friendship bracelet. one of the parents at work showed me this technique of using a circular cardboard loom and i love how quick it goes, you can easily finish a bracelet in one sitting. - cardboard - something small and circular (like a teacup or ramekin) - scissors, ruler, pen - embroidery thread in pretty colors , thin yarn, or ribbon trace a circle onto your cardboard, and use a ruler to draw 8 lines cut a small ways into each line, between 1/2 an inch to an inch and make a hole in the middle of the circle where all the lines intersect. cut 7 strands of embroidery floss, about 24 inches long and tie them together with a slip knot. pull your thread bundle through the hole in your cardboard with the knot right up next to the hole and use a little piece of tape to hold it in place while you start. now for the fun part!

DIY Beaded Bracelet I’m super excited to share this project with you, as it has been over two weeks in the making. I fussed around with many a mini-crochet needle and embroidery thread, and my house is now littered with bitty seed beads, to arrive at what I think is my favorite and most unique tutorial yet! Woo hoo! Materials: Embroidery thread (I used 6 stranded thread) Crochet hook size 1 (2.75mm) Seed beads Jewelry clasps Needle Scissors Directions: Note: This pattern is for a bracelet that measures 6.5″ at completion. I needed just under 16′ of embroidery thread for that length. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Or you can always go the neon route, which is clearly a Blog a la Cart fav. Admittedly, Sunny demands to wear the blue and “geen” one frequently. Photos: Ashley Weeks Cart

Bracelet Hello everybody! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I know I did, for the most part. I strained my back on Saturday then spent Sunday watching Mad Men and reading Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. I am A total dork for all things Bourdain/No Reservations.

DIY Woven Bracelet & Necklace I’ve been itching to make myself some jewelry inspired by Aurélie Bidermann’s “Do Brasil” line. Since I don’t have 300 Euros lying around, this looked like a design I could recreate on my own. I was primed to put together a DIY Tutorial for you all when I discovered that Honestly WTF had already done the honors. I picked up the gold necklace and the two bracelet chains from an antique shop for $5 a piece, and had the embroidery thread on hand. I only needed scissors and two bobby pins to see this project through. Pretty amazing results, no? Jump on over here for the tutorial. NECKLACE: I used shades of pale blue and turquoise embroidery thread, and wove through one side of the chain to mimic this necklace. CHARM BRACELET: This bracelet was already armed with charms. DOUBLE BRAIDED BRACELET: For this bracelet, I removed the charm and just used the chain. Photos: Courtesy of Ashley Weeks Cart

Sewing A Bracelet This is a fun one! Give it a try… The measurements given will accommodate wrist sizes between 5 and 7 inches around. Start with 24 inches of 1/2 inch wide ribbon. Fold again and pin. Keep folding and pinning… Now, you are ready to sew. When sewing, make sure the folds are facing you. Cut a piece of 1/2 inch wide elastic 2.5 inches long. This is what it looks like after you sew the elastic to one end. Measure the bracelet length you need. I told you this would be a fun one! The Real Deal: It only cost me $0.50 in materials to make this bracelet.

Sailor Knot Rope Bracelets Patriotic Turks Head Rope Bracelet From What Knot Shop As a child, we vacationed in Nantucket and Beach Haven, on the Jersey Shore. At the beginning of each summer, we’d slip on a rope “sailor” bracelet. We’d wear this bracelet all summer. In and out of the ocean, the pool, the softball field, the bracelet didn’t come off. It went on at the beginning of summer break and stayed on until the day before school started. Finally, on that last day of summer, our mom had to cut off the bracelet.

Summer Bracelets When M. came home from her camp with school, she showed me this yellow bracelet she made with 'scoubidoo' strings. One of her friends taught her how to make these and of course I wanted to have a go at it too. Instead of scoubidou string I used strips of fabric for one and leather - what did you think?!- shoelaces in offsetting colors for another one. So, in case you 're in need of a fun summer project here's a how-to in 16 pictures with a short description below. This is what you'll need for an adult size leather bracelet. - a 52cm long strip of fabric or leather shoe lace - a second strip of fabric or leather shoe lace of approximately 95 cm - a big-eyed needle - a cylindrical object to hold the loop so your project stays put while braiding (the neck of an Elmer's glue bottle works just fine; when out on the beach, the finger of a helper's hand might do the trick as well) Steps: 1. With special thanks to my little girl M. for teaching me how to make these...

Wrap Bracelet I made another wrap bracelet! This one is similar to this one at Henry Happened. Instead of two pieces of cord, I used three and the chain. I just held the chain with one of my pieces of cord as if it were one strand and braided. I put some coiled cord ends on each end and attached a clasp. I used about three feet of cord. You can see my beaded wrap cord bracelet HERE. Thanks for stopping by! I'll be linking up here:
