I used to know so many knots to make these! And I would tape them to my knee while in progress!
I coach high school field hockey and dang are they making a comeback. All the girls have them on their wrists and as headbands!

oh my goodness. this took me back to the 90s. when i begged my best friend toni to show me how to make these.

of course, after mastering the art, i made probably 2million of these and gave them to everyone i ever met.

thanks! hah

I still have some unfinished bracelets in my embroidery bag... think I might have to dig them out for something to do while I'm sitting in the yard this summer :)

Jennifer said...

Ahhh I loved making these! I'd tie the end around my big toe and off I went. I wonder how many I made over the years! I'm making a mental note to teach my daughter how in a few years. Love this post!
