One of the fun things about Pinterest is when people pin random things from your childhood that you had totally forgotten about.

Suddenly everyone on Pinterest is pinning friendship bracelets. I hadn't even thought about them in ages, but suddenly I remember how fun they were to make and wear.

I decided to see if I could still make them, for the kids, and the nieces and nephews, who, having not grown up in the 80's may not have ever had a handmade bracelet, and the status that went along with that. ;)

There are boatloads of tutorials on the net, but my standby resource is an old copy of Knot Now. (I don't have a laptop, so sometimes I'd rather just have a book to take along for projects than print 15 pages worth of tutorials.)

I cranked out a couple in an evening, and explained their meaning to V, who was quite proud of being my "best friend,", and had to go explain the whole thing to her daddy.

  1. Aww, I remember those. We used to make them all the time, but I couldn't make one now if my life depended on it. :)
