another fancy twist to the friendship bracelet.
these are cute, easy, and they fit right in with the valentine's day frenzy. they would be perfect for a little gift for some friends.
|scotch tape, 2 colors of embroidery floss, a pair of scissors|
AlRiGhT, here we go.
|cut 4 strands of each color. each strand should be at least 2 feet long (probably longer)|
|tie a knot at the top of the 8 strings and arrange them in a mirror image of each other. the color of the heart should be on the outside.|
The Forward Knot
|so do the first "v" of a friendship bracelet|
|then a blue v|
|this part is weird. take the blue string (that was the 2nd string) and do a backward not on the left side and a forward knot on the right so that the blue is on the outside.|
|then leave the blue on the outside and take the red and finish the v.|
|now take the red and move IT to the outside. ^same as before with the blue^|
|finish the v with the blue|
|then do a normal red v. it's a heart! :)|
and there you have it. go ahead - wear it with pride! ;)
