What I Made This Weekend…

I posted earlier last week that I was going to make these amazing friendship bracelets – inspired by the amazing Honestly WTF.  I was headed to Southampton for the weekend, but knew one thing – nothing was coming between me and my crafts!  As I packed my bag, the rainy weather forecast didn’t bother me in the slightest – probably because of the large selection of embroidery floss I had packed.  (We’re talking about 40-50 skeins, here.)

The weekend went better than I could have possibly hoped for.  It rained the whole time – bad for the tan, amazing for crafts time.  Our entire group of friends embraced the DIY trend.  The girls all made an amazing assortment of bracelets, and even the boys got into it, begging us to make them bracelets.

All in all I made 5 bracelets, but was most proud of the 20 strand bracelet I made.  It was a bit of work, but 100% worth it.

…like I said, it started out very slowly!
…but as the pattern progressed, my determination grew.
…before I knew it, I was done!  Just braid the ends and…
Voila!  All done – new favorite thing!
