I've also had these colours on the brain, so I pulled out: Solid Mandarin, Solid Carribean, Solid Cappuccino, Solid Charcoal, Solid Marigold, and Solid Natural. I did a simple stripe design, but there are literally hundreds of designs to choose from if you're wanting to be adventurous! (I always stuck with the basics, though!)
So this was my plan: find the perfect sentiment/image to go with my work in progress, get the bracelet started and then the recipient can finish it with the leftover twine:
(I loosely wrapped the remainder around the base layer for easy removal...)
I think it's neat that once my friend receives this card and finishes the bracelet it will be like this cool, collaborative, bonding thing we'll share and hopefully when she wears it she'll think of me! (I'm moving away soon so I'm finding myself a little sappy, lol...)
Thanks for joining me today, and hey, why don't you try dusting off those knot-making skills... I'd love to see your projects!
