Trend Spotting : Friendship Bracelets (repost - since Blogger deleted the first one)

Friendship Bracelets

ok....lets try this again (Thank you Blogger for deleting the original posting)
lately i have seen in several fashion blogs and magazines a new accessory trend going around....a fun blast from the past.....Friendship Bracelets.  you could easily sub in some metallic floss and do a black, white, and metallic scheme for a more "grown-up" sophisticated look.....maybe? i could just be reaching for an excuse to wear bracelets halfway up my arm again......i just sensed an eye roll from my mom...hehe


(source for all of the above)
now i dont know about you....but i loved making them back in the elementary days.  i had a floss box that i would carry around filled with every color of the rainbow, complete with a price list - printed out via my dot matrix printer, and i would make custom friendship bracelets and sell them for .50 cents.  even back then i had dreams of being a professional crafter....still haven't achieved that yet....but maybe one day. 

as you can see form the pics above.....the patterns have gotten more and more complex.  so if you are interested in picking this fun past-time back up here are some youtube video links that will help you out.
for more videos and how-tos look for "BeyondBracelets", "ChivonnesSecret" or "Hollistergirl1O1" - these are the 3 girls that ive gotten the most clear instructions from.  You can also go to for patterns
