So the baby finally completely destroyed my watch strap. I've recently acquired some packs of mixed embroidery silks from a house clearance (long story) and I've been thinking of making some old-style friendship bracelets, so I chose some cheerful colours and tried to remember how to do it.
Not too shabby! Muscle memory is amazing. I must have made hundreds of these bracelets when I was a teenager, all of us sitting in a row on the school wall with the bracelets safety-pinned to our school skirts, knotting away.
I finished this one off with a button and neatly sewed the ends under. I need to put a drop of glue on them to make sure it doesn't all unravel at an inopportune moment.
I'm trying to remember some of the more complicated patterns now. And maybe beads? Hmm.
