I used to be a very creative kid. I was always sewing, painting, making lanyards, knitting or creating clay figurines. I guess as I got older, I just sort of stopped creating things.
I’m always inspired by craftysurf.com, so I thought today, I would make a couple of bracelets to go with the beautiful anchor bracelet I won off her blog. Also, I love beachy, surfer -yogi bracelets, so wouldn’t it be nice to create it myself?
Being inspired by my new surfboard colors, I went to the local craft shop and bought nylon string and jute string in peach, champagne and teal colors. I like the natural look of the jute string. I also bought a nice starfish charm, just to try out.
I found a really easy braided pattern online, and made two bracelets; one with the charm and one without.
Maybe next time I will add beads and a more complicated stitch. I also love hemp cord so I will probably experiment with that next time.
