DIY: Friendship Bracelets

Friendship Bracelet Craft 
Tuesday, June 19 at 1:00 pm Join us as we use colorful embroidery floss to make friendship bracelets. Make one for yourself and one for a friend! All materials will be provided. No registration is necessary. For teens entering grades 7–12.

If you attended our Friendship Bracelet Craft (or if you were unable to make it) and are interested in continuing to make enough bracelets (or anklets) to fill both your arms and legs before the summer is out, then check out some of these great websites!

Chinese Staircase Bracelet (instructions #1)
Chevron Friendship Bracelet (instructions #2)
Fishtail Friendship Bracelet (finger-weaving style)

Also, here's the directions (from Klutz) that we used to make the traditional Friendship Bracelet:

Just a reminder: remember to cut more than enough thread. You can always trim it shorter, but you can't easily add on! (When doing the above friendship bracelet, measure from your shoulder to the tip of your middle finder--arm fully extended. This should give you plenty of thread.)
