My girls have been asking to make friendship bracelets for a while now, so when this package of embroidery threads arrived in the post ...
it was the perfect opportunity to try them
I was inspired by this post from Pam at Threading My Way, who made a little friendship bracelet kit as a Christmas gift - such a neat idea!
We followed this tutorial that Pam recommended, using a braiding disk.
It was so easy, and in no time my girls and I had each whipped up a pretty bracelet:
I've never made friendship bracelets before and really had fun with this. We're going to check out more tutorials and make lots more of these.
How pretty are they?
Gorgeous combination of thread colours!
Have you ever made friendship bracelets? Do you have any other tutorials to recommend?
