You will need:

  • 2-4 different colors of embroidery floss
  • Beads (at least 3)
  • Tape
  • Ruler or measuring tape
Here’s what you do:
1. Cut four 36 in lengths of embroidery floss in your favorite colors.
2. Place them altogether and tie a knot at the top. Tape the knot down.
3. Starting from the left label the strands A, B, C, D with pieces of tape.

4. Take string A and wrap it over and under string B. Pull tight.

5. Repeat step 4 once again with the same strings.

6. Drop Strand B and pick up strand C. Pull strand A over and under strand C. pull tight. Repeat again once more with the same strings. Do the same on string D. Strand A will be on the far right.

7. One row is now finished! Continue the next row by making 2 knots with strand B over strand C, D, and A. With each row, the strand on the far left is always “worked over” to the right.
8. When you are ready, you can add your first bead. Take your labeled tags off and group the strings together. Slip your first bead over the strings. (IMPORTANT: make sure the hole in the bead can fit over your 4 strings)

9. Continue weaving your strings, always starting with the string farthest to the left.

10. Once your bracelet fits tightly, tie off that section with a knot and braid the strings for about 2 in. Tie off the braid with a knot.

11. Cut off the access string, tie around your or your friend’s wrist and now you have a great beaded friendship bracelet!

Now send your friendship bracelet into iTwixie and get another one back from an iTwixie girl from another part of the world! Sound fun? Click here to learn how to take iTwixie’s Friendship Bracelet Challenge!!!
