First, I'd like to thank everyone who signed up for the friendship bracelet swap—we have more than 30 people on board and I can't wait to see what everyone makes!
Over the weekend, I pulled out some of my old bracelet making supplies (I used to have stacks and stacks of floss wound around those little white holders) and gave my old skills a test. Turns out that I, amazingly, actually do remember how to make the bracelets—and I would guess that it's been, oh about 15 years since I've made one. So that was a delightful surprise (I guess making so many really drilled it into my head!). I started making two, using two separate techniques, though both involve knotting in what I can only describe as being in the shape of a 4.
The two styles show above are the only two that I ever made using embroidery floss—though I did make gimp bracelets for a while, but that's an entirely separate topic! I'd love to hear how the making is going for everyone participating in the swap- are you remembering how to do it?
