found these left over embroidery floss from my grade school period at home the other days.
curious how my friendship bracelet looks like?
this time I am going to make a red white and blue bracelet inspired by the olympics.
to get the ideal width, I decided to have 12 embroidery floss and each one is about 30 inches long.
I divided the 12 flosses into 2 groups, and each of them contains 6 flosses.
1st group from left to right, is in the order of red, white, blue, red white and blue.
Hence, it would become a mirror image.
1st group would be making in a regular "4" knot.
2nd group would be making a reversed "4" knot, so the strip would be going inward.
when the red floss from both groups are finished, it would look like this.
forming a "V" shape.
repeat the above steps you will begin to see a pattern.
when you get the ideal length, simply tie and knot and braid the remaining floss.
you can also decorate your bracelet and add a little personal style.
for me, I sew a silver crystal plate on top of the bracelet to give it a little shine.
Viola! here is my bracelet, and I love to stack it with other fun colorful ones.
