Making Friendship Bracelets Tutorial

Today I am teaching a class for adults on making friendship bracelets. I used to adore making these as a teen, and I still do. It is a great meditative exercise.

I truly love the simplicity of taking string, and knotting it to make something pretty.

I am teaching the class how to make three different kinds of bracelets.

This one is a fishtail braid, which is new to me, but so pretty.

I have been making this kind, forever.

Years ago, in my early 20’s, a friend of mine came over to my house, we watched The Doors movie (which you can get with my affiliate link, if you like that sort of thing), and she wrapped my hair using the same method as I used for this bracelet, pictured above. It took the entire length of the movie, because I had such long hair back then, but it was so worth it. I kept it in for about a month.

I created a tutorial over at Instructables for only one of the designs, so you can make one of these for yourself!
