DIY Bracelet Party ~ Woven Chain Bracelet


We were given this amazing inspiration from the lovely ladies over at Honestly...WTF (instructions here).  And there were several of us bloggers who were interested in trying it, so we decided to all do our own versions and have a link-up party.  This way you can view everyone's creations in one spot & get inspired to create your own!  Here are my partners in crime (click on the pictures below to go to their sites & see the finished products):






Special thanks to my friend, Christina, who helped me with this little project.  She has made many friendship bracelets in her day & was much more comfortable working with the embroidery thread than I was.  And she helped hold the bracelet in place while I wove the thread through the links.  If you don't have someone to assist you, I recommend taping or weighting it down while you work.  Also, one of the threads I bought was "metallic" and proved incredibly difficult to work with, as it kept coming unravelled (save yourself the headache & stick to the solid colors).  Here's a picture of the bracelet I made:

Pretty bracelet, the blue really stands out. You did a great job and we appreciate you ladies sharing this DIY project with the rest of us:) I would hope I could do it by myself, but like you I may need help- I wonder if it helps or hurts having very small hands, lol!
