Steps Involved In Making Your Own Friendship Bracelet

If it is your first time, then you should definitely go for a striped bracelet. You can make a striped bracelet of your own with as many strings as you like. Just make sure that you use a minimum of six strips. Using less than six strips will not make the bracelet look good.

So, what you need to do is start cutting a string from the embroidered floss that you have picked. Make sure that each strip is approximately one meter long. Do not cut the strings shorter or else you will not be able to get the desired result. 

Once you have cut the strings from the floss, tie them in the knot and fasten them on the safety pin. Next, pin the strings on something so that you can work on them easily. Make sure that you place them in the order that you want the strings on your bracelet to be.

Pick the main string. This will be the string on which you will start your work. Once you are done with it, tie the bracelet downwards. Just remember that every time you make a knot, the working string will change its position. 

By working on the main string, make the knots all over the back strings until a new row is formed. Continue making rows with each row until the bracelet is long enough. Once it is done, make a normal ponytail at the end. Your bracelet is now complete. Cut the waste strings and it is ready to be worn.

So, if you want to make a friendship bracelet, follow the steps mentioned above and you are good to go. You can also make other kids fashion jewelry using the embroidered floss.
