Did you know friendship bracelets began as a Central American tradition? There are two indigenous traditions accorded to wearing these bracelets. The first decrees the recipient must wear the bracelet until the cords fall apart because that’s the way to honor the maker’s effort. The second bestows the fulfillment of a wish once the bracelet disintegrates!

How to make friendship bracelets tutorials.

Many of us have fabric scraps, short bits of leather, embroidery floss, ribbons and other cords lying around. Why not make a bracelet base of leather and braid those scraps away?. I’ve hand picked the tutorials here because they are particularly lovely familiar and not so familiar friendship bracelets. Now that school is almost starting up, these are just the gifts the younger set might wish to give to their pals.

They can be as inexpensive or as glamorous as you choose to make it. Check out my past post on the amazing friendship bracelets of Katherine Sturgis.

Catherine Fox’s video tutorial on FaveCrafts shows the basics of making the classic friendship bracelet from embroidery floss.
