in which I feel crafty

Remember how once, a long time ago, I posted a bunch of links to friendship bracelet patterns?


Click for slightly larger images.

Thread
My thread, obsessively organised, and some of my stored bracelets and beads (and spare ends of thread in the lower right).

IMG_0806
MORE stored bracelets. I probably have 150-200, but I have never, ever counted. Some of them are from when I was in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL and they all look brand new and feel as if I just finished knotting them.

Examples
Some of my favourite bracelets. The oldest one of these is the one with the loop and knot at one end (my old way of doing them) and it is from high school.

Yep. Just felt the need to show it all off. My 15 years of bracelets.

This means you want me to send you one, right? ;) tell me a few colours (not like "blue" because look at all the blue I have...) and I'll whip something up. Most designs only take me an hour tom complete.

Ooh that would be glorious. I like bright colours, but beyond that, I trust your judgement :)

I love you for this. I've been meaning to start doing this again. Where do you get the thread?

I used to get it at WalMart for 33c/skein, but they only sell it in packages of colours now, no selection. Now I go to Michael's (or equivalent craft stores) and pay more, but the selection is eye-burningly AWESOME.

I can make more manly-looking ones, too, you know. I made one for Enzo's bff and the guy wore it till it fell off (which is what you're supposed to do!)
