BFF bracelet tutorial

 
 
It’s a veritable arm party over here. Our BFF Tatiana F. of the blog Fashion Forward has created a cinchy so-cool friendship bracelet tutorial for all you crafty cuties out there. Instantly channel summer’s festival trend by stacking these with your other string bracelets and gold bangles. Make a pile, and then divvy them up among your crew!

 

What you’ll need:

Scissors

Embroidery needle

Embroidery floss in bright colors

Linked chains about 4” long (can be found at craft stores—use pliers to separate the links if necessary)
 

What you’ll do:

Step 1: Gather six strands of embroidery floss (each should be about 12 inches long) and knot the ends together on one side. Begin to braid about 3 inches of the length and knot all the strings at the end of the braid, leaving a long tail.
 

Step 2: Divide the strands into two sections, so three strands are in each, then thread the first section through the embroidery needle and begin weaving through two lengths of chain, whipstitching in one direction. The embroidery floss should connect both lengths of chain.
 

 

Step 3: Once you have woven the floss in one direction as shown in the images above, take the other section of floss and begin to weave in the opposite direction creating criss-crosses.
 

Step 4: After having completed the criss-cross design between the two chains, knot the end and braid the rest of the tail like the first step. Voilà! You’ve not got a beautiful and colorful bracelet that’ll rock your wrist this summer.
