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.

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.

Crochet Tofu Birdie

Category : Amigurumi, Crochet

Crochet Tofu BirdieCrochet Tofu Birdie – Cleaning & clearing up my craft cabinet, I found all my old workpieces. There is this group of cute cubic little animals that I called them the “Tofu Family”. Why Tofu?? Tofu in Mandarin is bean curd. Everyone one in the animal family are in shape of cube.

Making them are not that difficult but to think of the design is a tedious work. I have to make sure every design looked like what I want them to be. After the designing, what can the finished product used for? I found that this tofu animals can give it for toddlers to play with. Every it of the animal is stuff with polyfil and it is washable. It can be a key chain after adding on some keychain accessories.

 

Amigurumi – Doctor Bear and Bunny Nurse

Category : Amigurumi, Crochet

Amigurumi - Doctor and NurseI was packing my cabinet filled with all my work pieces, I found this pair of cute little Amigurumi, Doctor Bear, Bunny Nurse. Amigurumi  is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features, as is typical in Japanese culture.

The blue bear is a doctor and the pink rabbit is a nurse. When I started to pick up crocheting, I thought I can only make simple bags and scarves. There was once I came across a book after making Amigurumi, I was amazed by all the cute little animals. It was not that simple as I thought. Each little cutie needs to be assembled up with so many little parts to become one complete piece. I need to sew each and every parts together and make sure I put every parts at the correct place, example the hands, legs, ears etc. Sometimes, I have to sewing on and removing the parts many times to have them in the correct places. Therefore, making 1 Amigurumi really takes a long time to had it done.
