Today on my Craft Table I am celebrating : Friendship
he first World Friendship Day was proposed for 30 July in 1958, by the World Friendship Crusade. On 27 April 2011 the General Assembly of the United Nations declared 30 July as official International Friendship Day. However, some countries, including India, celebrate Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August.
Today I am making Friendship Bracelets :
My Supplies :
assorted plastic beads
Hemp string ( 3 strands ) cut to length
Square Knot are strong and one of the most common knots used in macramé. The square knot is done in 2 parts. Start out by bending the left working cord, cross it over the filler cords and then under the right working cord. Pass the right working cord behind the filler cords and pull it through the loop created by the left working cord. Gently pull on both cords. The knot is now half way done.
You finish the knot by doing the same, but in reverse. Bend the right working cord, cross it over the filler cords and then under the left working cord. Pass the left working cord behind the filler cords and pull it through the loop created by the left working cord. Now pull on both cords again. You are done!
With beads strung between in various colors. If you use more strand or thicker cords you can make a thicker bracket But make sure your beads whole sizes match the cord size.
