I was heavily into this about three years ago. I used mainly 6 strand embroidery thread, but I tried all sorts of things. I must have some pictures somewhere.....
I think it was you that sparked my interest. Thank you. we learn so much from each other on the Cute site
Those are really pretty. I've passed along screen shots of these pictures to my sister and she said, "Darn it, I have to go back to town!" We try to do a "girls day" at least once or twice a year and she and I and my daughters all get together and try to make something together. We've made homemade lotion, candles, candy, all kinds of things. This would be perfect for us. Thanks for sharing this--I had never heard of it before.
the supplies are readily available online. . Look for a beginners kit. Also look on youtube for beginner tutorials
I'll do that. Thanks for your help and idea.
these are really pretty Bev & what gr8 key fobs they make too !~hugs~
I think the children will pick this up quickly! I need 2 for Tuesday!
There are so many possibilities for this craft. It is amazing what can be made on these looms. I have done some reverse style which are so pretty, I used yarns and embroidery floss. Some of the flat styles are also fun to do. You will enjoy finding all the possibilities. There is always another pattern to try.
These look awesome will have to go to the shops again... sigh
I thought about trying this a few months ago but never got around to buying the discs.
Something else to explore. Oh dear I need a few more lives. You did a great job. Those bracelets are good looking.
nope ****i never even heard of this before ***Many Moons ago my boys breaded things but nothing as pretty as these .Great job Bev. hugs Carolyn
It's just a fancy braid, the finished bracelets are at top. the middle picture just shows some of the beads and endings and cord
These are gorgeous, I want to try to make some for the girls in my family.
How do you finish them with the metal ends?
they glue on with a super glue gel type
Those are really cute, Bev!
WOW ! I would like to do that ! The ones you show here look great. I will have to investigate this braiding. Thanks for sharing !
