Remember friendship bracelets? I loved making friendship bracelets as a tween. Friendship bracelets are simple, beautiful, and can make wishes come true. The lucky recipient of a friendship bracelet is granted one wish. After you receive a friendship bracelet, make a wish, wear the bracelet until the threads break – and your wish will come true! Friendship bracelets are a very simple and whimsical way to wish the stress out of life.

This afternoon crafty ladies got together to drink creamy earl grey tea (my favourite), catch up on life, and make friendship bracelets. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a cold and snowy afternoon.

I pulled out my stash of embroidery thread, some safety pins, and Friendship Bracelets by Camilla Gryski. Friendship Bracelets was published in 1993, but is still a fantastic book with easy to follow tutorials. I am very please that I kept this book over the years; it really would be a shame if I gave it away.

I am quite happy with my bracelet. I am excited to make more bracelets and try out some different patterns! Unfortunately as a twentysomething it is no longer fashionable to wear a thread bracelet until it is all ragged and about to fall off. I will have to find a more practical way to make my wishes come true!

Keeping crafting and dreaming ladies! <3
