Old school.

I stayed up late last night making a 'remember how much I loved these when I was a kid' chevron friendship bracelet. How's that for a crazy Saturday night?!

Let me just say, this thing took forever. I love it, though! The colors are so pretty together in person. I used four colors: pale aqua, a darker aqua, olive green and a greenish light brown. I'm tempted to make another in mustard and gray...

  7. Could never do those in elementary school, just did a sad braid. You should make 3, then put cute fabric on the ends, then you'll have a cuff!

  11. I love these, Amy. I didn't make them as a child but a couple of weeks ago I had the urge to give it a try. Alas, I was not meant to succeed. I just did not have the patience for it. Love the colours you have chosen.

    our family hit the road for 1-2 weeks every summer and when i was in high school, i spent most of the road time making bracelets and reading. i'm so glad to see they're making a comeback!
