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.

New Friendship Bracelets

Category : Friendship Bracelet

 

After making a few new and complicated bracelets, I still like the old and simple patterns. Maybe I am a nostalgic person. 🙂

I preferred bracelets that are only contain 3 to 4 colors, strings that are not more that 18 and the patterns are not too complicated.

I love making friendship bracelets but I don,t wear them.

If you like any any of the bracelets here, you can email me or visit my store at www.etsy.com/shop/friendsnme.

Created a New Friendship Bracelet Pattern.

Rabbit Friendship Bracelet Pattern

After making so many friendship bracelets, I find my skill has improved. My next course is to create my own bracelet pattern.

There are mainly three types of bracelet patterns : –

    – The Alpha Pattern,

    – the Normal Pattern and

    – the Kumihimo Pattern.

In my opinion, alpha pattern is easiest to create and easiest to follow (using two colors). You can create pictures and alphabets for alpha pattern.

Kumihimo pattern is braided on a kumihimo wheel or disc instead of flat, and the bracelet will be in round instead of flat. For kumihimo pattern, as long as the threads are placed at the correct slots and the exchange of the threads are correct, the kumihimo bracelet will looked like what you expected. The most complicated pattern will be the normal pattern ( It don’t really looks normal!). There are a number of knots you need to know before you started to make them.

My Friendship Bracelet Collection – Zig Zag Pattern

Category : Friendship Bracelet

Zig Zag Pattern Friendship Bracelet | PinkI was referring to my old Friendship Bracelet Pattern book today and this particular pattern caught my eyes -Zig Zag Pattern. Tried making one and it took me about 2 continuous hours to complete. I find it easier this time as compared to my first attempt .

My next attempt is to do with more colours.

I will come out with the pattern sheet and if anyone is interested to make one for themselves or as a gift, I’m willing to share.

Your comment is most welcome if you like my work.

Friendship Bracelet Challenge!!

Category : Friendship Bracelet

18 strings friendship braceletI had participated in friendship bracelet challenge. A few patterns in different levels are given to us and we just have to make it within the given time. This time due to Christmas holidays, therefore we are given 4 weeks instead of the regular challenge only one week. More patterns to choose from. I have pick an advance level pattern. It is a real challenge for me. This is the first time using 18 strings for normal pattern. At the beginning of making the bracelet, I keep on pulling the wrong thread. If you didn’t realized it fast, you have to untie a few rows of the pattern. This will be the most tedious work to do when making a bracelet. This bracelet took me two days to complete. It is a good try for me and I will like to go for more difficult patterns.
