- DIY Heart Friendship Bracelet – Honestly WTF
Just repeat those three things over and over again until you run out of thread.
It's a very common mistake to make but if you're aware of it you will be less likely to be tricked by it. When you pull a right string down it goes on the right side of the set of strings on the bottom. When you move the left string up it goes on the left side of the strings at the top. It is tempting to want to make the thread cross over and to put a right one to the left side or a left one to the right side but just don't do it.
It's a trap! Detach the strings from the wheel and tie a knot at the end of the braid. Leave a little space about the side of the big knot you started with and then tie another knot. Now push the big knot through the two knots to close the bracelet. Trim any crazy ends and you're done! It will be much easier to find your place when you come back than if you had left all strings in pairs of two. I haven't been able to find too much information about this but if you do please share. Look for it on the arts and craft aisle in the pink section.

I got out a cup with about a 3" base and traced the base onto the thick plastic from the sides of gallon jugs of commercial tea that my husband keeps buying. Then I cut four more slits about midway between each of the first four slits. A friend gave me a spent. I made dozens of these discs in just minutes. Eight slits, use seven strands of cord thread, yarn, whatever. My students and grandkids love 'em, and they're great to keep on hand for unexpected down time.go here

It's easy to add small beads or charms. Kids love giving and exchanging them, and it leads them into new areas of crafts and handwork.

Marina aka marina from Russia had been collecting bits of yarn from all over the world to knit a super scarf that embodied the unity and friendship between different nations. It took a whole year, but she finally finished this project late last year and took some photos with her friend Dasha, to show you the result.
We thought the photos looked so lovely, we had to make another post about it! Have a look:. Marina says:. Tags: crafts , mail-project. News, updates, and all kinds of goodies and stories from the postal world! I imagined the hot Bahamas, rainy London, night in Hong Kong, ancient palaces of Osaka, vivid festivals of India, the rock art of Egypt… Knitting is like traveling the planet!
This scarf is a string of the Brazilian jungle, African desert, from the cold of the North Pole Spitsbergen archipelago and South distant Antarctica. They did the long and hard way: they were taken by snowmobile, helicopter and boat, by ship, by plane, by rail and finally by road. What about you?

Congratulations to this wonderful project! Posted by nehalennia on 11 Jan, I agree that these photos are perfect candidates to be postcards themselves! With talents like this, both Marina and Dasha can open a web-site for their own merchandise - photos, postcards, knitted "stufffff I'd settle for a shawl or a blanket nasty weather in Toronto - you can tell :. Posted by kallini on 11 Jan, This is such a beautiful project anyways, but these pictures are truely stunning. This would even look good in a model portfolio. Well done, both of you.
Posted by Chenoah on 11 Jan, I wonder if Doctor Who got the yarn for his long scarf this way. Of course, his yarn donations would have come from all across the galaxy Posted by petrini1 on 11 Jan, I do hope that the suggestions for postcards of the lovely artist and her creation will be headed. Beautiful photos, beautify lady, and an amazing accomplishment. Posted by jjkeim on 12 Jan,
