Erica and I have literally been emailing and texting pictures of all things friendship bracelets back and forth for the past few weeks! Its safe to say we generally approve of them, and pretty much LOVE THEM!
Yesterday she sent me this picture of macrame rings from Etsy, minutes after I bought a friendship bracelet floss kit from Michaels!(Get one HERE.)
I gotta say, Im usually all DIY this and DIY that, but with the gorgeous (and cheap!) stuff being sold on etsy in this department, unless you absolutely love doing it, I would totally buy one!
Here’s a few of my favorites from around etsy:
From Bracelets: Available in custom colors! $3.50
All of these sellers have items that range from around $5 and up! (But of course, I like the fat and expensive ones…)I dont know how whats an hour or two of time could only be worth $5 but hey! Ill take it!
As for me, you know I had to try to make one out of leather and suede, right?
This is the first one I’ve made in about 15 years… It came out a bit lumpy because of the leather and suede being different thicknesses.
(Sorry for the crappy iphone pic. I left my camera battery charger in the city and I am by my in laws.)
Now I’m working on one made out of the thread I bought, but I might just buy one instead!
