This is the second DIY post in my friendship bracelet series. I hadn’t anticipated my DIY Chevron Pastel Friendship Bracelet post would be so popular, but it seems you all love a bit of nostalgic crafting! Once again I chose pretty pastel colours and added a dark pink.
Start by cutting 5 lengths of embroidery thread each around 30cm long. You can use more or less colours if you wish, but this will change the thickness of the bracelet. Tie a knot a couple of inches from the top & tape down.
This bracelet uses the same knot repeated 10 times for each colour. The colour you are working with loops underneath all the other threads and back through the middle. Pull the thread up to the top. Be sure to keep the rest of the threads taut.
TIP: If you want the colour blocks to be longer or shorter, just increase or decrease the amount of knots. Simple as that!
After 10 knots with the dark pink thread, change to the next colour, and then the next. You will notice that the knots start to spiral around.
Continue the pattern until the bracelet measures 2-3 inches (but check on your wrist!). Plait the remaining thread at each end and knot to secure.
All done! Due to some follower requests, there will be a selection of friendship bracelets in my Etsy Shop shortly!
Have you done any nostalgic crafting lately?
