Friendship Bracelets






I have a new obsession. I came across this post and immediately went to Hobby Lobby in Austin to grab some embroidery thread. I already had tons at home, but I had to make one right away! I have never ever made one, not even in middle school. In fact, I don't think I've ever even received one. I followed the tutorial and was hooked. My first one took several hours, but now I can make one in about an hour and a half. It's similar to knitting to where you can sit and watch law and order and make them at the same time. So far I've made 13! My favorite one is reds and pinks and extra tiny. See Bitsy wearing it. Her mom cut off the ties so it would stay on "permanently" like in middle school.  It's so cute to see her wear a bracelet. She also likes that we all have one on too, she fits right in.


That cool thread holder was giving to me by my mom's bff when she moved. I just threw it in my craft closet. When I got back from Austin, I got it out and got it all organized. I only purchased a few new colors. I don't know what I like more, making bracelets, or winding the new thread on one of those paper spools. Who needs a bracelet?

Yay! Casey and I made a ton with her kids and all the neighborhood girls. I'm still wearing mine and am planning on rocking it until it falls off - middle school style!
