DIY Friendship Bracelet Funzo

I can't tell you exactly how long it's been since I've dabbled in friendship bracelet-making, but I can tell you that back in the day I LOVED it. When I revisited the activity this weekend, like hopping on a bicycle for the first time in a long time, it was love all over again!

A bracelet, a birthday gift from my Mum, had broken. It was a bar of rubies, strung on black leather cord that had metal closures on either side. I wore it non-stop for a solid week which I'm assuming was my mistake. I would shower and sleep with it on {it was surprisingly that comfy!}, and alas a day came along when one of the closures popped free of the leather cord. I wasn't sure what the best fix would be. Glue? But it would just happen again, no?

Feeling defeated, I let my broken bracelet sit in my jewelry box for several months before the solution dawned on me. I had seen the absolutely rad "DIY Embellished Friendship Bracelets" post by Honestly...WTF and wanted to give the project a whirl, so one morning when I caught a glimpse of my poor broken bracelet, I began to connect the dots! I ran to Purl Soho, a spectacular yarn store in Soho {obvi!} and grabbed every color of embroidery floss that I could get my hands on. The rest of the day was reserved to getting my bracelet-making groove back. I've now become a bracelet making machine!

Here she is, all shiny and new, and might I add looking pretty amazing for Spring and Summer?!
