All you need to make a friendship bracelet is some embroidery floss! In this instructable I'll show you how to make the most basic of friendship bracelets - the candy stripe!
You can make them as thick or thin as you like, and you can easily learn how to make a friendship bracelet in less than an hour. You'll get quicker and quicker as you go, too!
I apologize in advance for using several different bracelets to demonstrate how to make a friendship bracelet - I did lots of the steps over and over to try to get the best photos. Getting pictures of tiny knots is really tricky. :P
Step 1: What you'll need:
- embroidery floss/thin yarn
- tape or pins/safety pins
The embroidery floss can be the cheap kind that comes in huge packs like this! You don't need anything fancy. Just make sure it's six stranded - otherwise it won't be thick enough for a nice bracelet.
Lion Brand yarn also has these tiny little skeins of yarn called Bonbons that are perfect. And lordy they are cute.
The tape or pins will keep the bracelet in place as you braid/knot the friendship bracelet. :)
