I've made a few bracelets

picked up the hobby after supporting friends' businesses a bit ($)

thought I'd get a sample of their work before figuring it out myself

 

I wound up making them better than they ever did, so... Fulfilling hobby *shot*

 

here's some pictures:

aaand my very first one https://pbs.twimg.co...A_vdo.jpg:large

 

I've a few others as well, but I'm too lazy to grab my phone which is totally not three feet away from me or anything

and take pictures of bracelets on a  keychain right in front of my face

Making friendship bracelets were what kept me sane during my first real break up lol

I usually just made them from embroidery floss and just did really simple things, but occasionally i'd make something weird up as i went along

This was was always my favourite :D I owned a Klutz craft book when I was younger. I made sooooo many bracelets, but this ladder one was seen as one of the toughest. It was always such a nice feeling finishing one.

I make friendship bracelets all the time, hell I make anything all the time I'm always crafting

 

I made so many rainbow friendship bracelets to try and get a girlfriend, no luck but hey at least it's repelling boys

 

At the moment though I'm making dreamcatchers and selling them 'cause I need to buy food
