Colours in your Bracelets

Category : Friendship Bracelet

What a day! Making a new friendship bracelet today, the colours of the bracelet that I matched looks ….. not the look that I want.

Matching colours is important in making a friendship bracelet. People do say that:”Choose your favourite colours!” But some patterns don’t look good in some particular colours. Example two colours combinations on the same pattern. both look so different.

The knots on the bracelet are very fine. The colours must blend. Even with the colours on the pattern looks different on the final product. Sometimes I look around my desk for inspiration – I have many colourful craft work on my desk. I do check the website for some color wheels to play with, like www.paletton.com, www.colorblender.com etc. Sometimes I depend on my mood to have the color combination for the bracelets. Therefore, some bracelets will look very UGLY when I am not in good mood.

These friendship bracelets are hand-woven using cotton embroidery floss in rainbow color. The length of the woven area is approx. 6″ (15cm), 0.8″ (2cm) width and the total length is approx. 7″ (17.5cm) with a loop at one end and a white plastic button at the other end.

I personally felt that friendship bracelets does not necessarily wear around the wrist. I have made many others that fit for other purposes like anklet, bookmark, keychain etc.

Threads for Friendship Bracelets

Category : Friendship Bracelet

Making friendship bracelets, threads are the main item. There are many types of thread and many points to look out for. For example, the texture, the thickness, the colours etc. I prefer to use embroidery floss for making friendship bracelets especially DMC embroidery floss. DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss is a soft thread made from 100% long staple Egyptian cotton. It is comprised of 6 size 25 easily separated strands, allow you to adjust the thickness of your stitching by using a different number of strands. Colours are 100% colorfast and fade resistant. DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss is available in 454 solid colors, 18 variegated colors. If you wants your friendship bracelet in different thickness, you can add more strands to it.

There are many other kinds of strings like, craft thread, yarn, crochet thread, cord, leather string, sew thread etc. There all have different textures and thickness. Up to different preferences.
