Friendship bracelets

Enter the characters you see below Sorry, we just need to make sure you’re not a robot. This post may contain friendship bracelets links. Use simple patterns, metallic threads, bright colors, and fun accessories to create gorgeous friendship bracelets for adults. I have such fond memories of making friendship bracelets as a kid. After picking out just the right colors, I’d spend hours knotting and knotting until my fingers were numb and raw. Part of the reason I loved it so much was the creative element — choosing my own patterns and color combinations, and seeing my visions come to life. Another reason was the joy of creating something for someone else. When I noticed yarn bracelets coming back into style a few years ago, nostalgia kicked in.

This could be something fun to do with my girls. I want to make these myself! Finished friendship bracelet on a wrist. Begin knotting according to the instructions for the chevron bracelet. Don’t forget to tie each knot twice.

I forgot when I started, and as you can see in the photo below, the knots in the first four sections are too thin. Before we secure the lobster clasp, we’re going to add some extra floss to make a tassel. This isn’t necessary, but it adds a little pizazz and also helps conceal the knot and loose strands you’d otherwise be left with. These extra strands can be the same colors you used for your bracelet or a different color. In this tutorial I used orange. Lay the tassel strands horizontally across the bracelet strands, just beneath the lobster clasp as shown.

I slid on a little rhinestone charm before I tied the knot, but this is totally optional. Thread one of the ends of the floss through the needle and draw it back through the wrapped strands and through the center of the knot to secure it. Trim the end so it’s invisible. Repeat with the other loose end. If you don’t want to add any additional embellishments, you’re all done! If you would like to add some colored rhinestones to the front of the bracelet, continue reading below.

You can usually find them in opaque colors or clear. Cut the rhinestone chain to the length of your bracelet. Thread a piece of embroidery floss that matches or complements your bracelet onto the needle. Tie a knot at the end of the thread so that it will be secure when you start sewing. Starting at the underside of the bracelet, begin sewing the rhinestone chain onto the center of the bracelet by sewing the thread in between the rhinestones. If you want to go over each section more than once to completely conceal the metal, you can, but once is enough to secure it to the bracelet. Add a charm to a friendship bracelet: If you’d like to add a charm, like the little bird in the photo below, calculate where the middle of the bracelet will be. When you’ve knotted to that point, simply slide the charm onto the thread at the far right before and continue knotting as before.

These bracelets are fun to make, and fun to wear. Wear them alone, or pair them with other string or metal bracelets. Share them with a friend, or keep them for yourself. Blast some 80’s music in the background and take a fun trip down memory lane, while making pretty jewelry in the process. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

I know how to do the v design, but I was wondering how to do the zig zag and one line ones. Also, how can you make the bracelets wider? Every time I make them they’re always small and the same size. Thank you so much for making the time to post this. I found it very helpful and handy. Beautiful craft work and some interesting twists I had not thought of! I’ve asked a question several times, no one has gotten back to me! You can be any age, young or old and still make and wear friendship bracelets right?

Tracy, your comment received a reply yesterday. I’m saying you can be any age, young or old to make and wear friendship bracelets right? I love making bracelets, I have an inventory of all different patterns, I’m almost 37, am I too old to make and wear these? So I say you’re not too old at all! Do you put your name in your brackets, I do, I do butterflies, hearts, all sorts of patterns! I’ll even repeat patterns and do different variations of them! I’m not a huge craft person, but I love having something simple to make with my hands that looks pretty too.

Step 1 Cut 2 strands of embroidery floss about 5 ft long, fold in half and knot in the middle to make a loop. Secure with tape to a table or board. Cord 1 is the holding cord. Step 3 Use Cord 2 to tie a Half Hitch. Step 4 then over it, and back under Cord 2 on the right. Step 5 Pull Cord 2 up to tighten. Keep the Cord 2 end on the right when you are done.

Step 6 For the second knot, Cord 2 becomes the holding cord. Use Cord 1 to tie a Half Hitch by moving Cord 1 under the holding cord. Step 7 Flip Cord 1 over Cord 2, then back under Cord 1 on the left. Step 8 Pull Cord 1 up to tighten. Keep the Cord 1 end on the left when you are done. Continue to alternate back and forth between the two cords to form the rest of the bracelet. Step 1 Cut 5 strands of embroidery floss about 4 ft long, fold in half and knot at the middle to make a loop. Step 2 You will braid using two same-color lengths of cord as one piece.

Make sure that the two cords lie flat next to each other as you braid. Arrange the cords so that there are 3 pairs on the left and 2 pairs on the right, in any color order you like. Step 4 Pull the Working Pair over to the right side. You now have 2 pairs on the left and 3 pairs on the right. Step 6 Pull the Working Pair over to the left side. You now have 3 pairs on the left and 2 pairs on the right. Step 1 Cut 5 strands of embroidery floss about 6 ft long, fold in half. Step 2 Knot at the middle to make a loop.

Tighten your knot and secure with tape to a table or board. Step 3 Lay out cords in your preferred order. You will knot using two same-color lengths of cord as one piece. Step 6 Pull up on the Working Cords to tighten. Sign up for our upcoming workshops! Get nostalgic and make your own cool friendship bracelets.
