There were so many afternoons when my girlfriends and I would go to Woolworth’s around the corner from our school to pick out colors for our bracelets and then go to an ice cream shop or 7-Eleven… some of my happiest memories. 14 Jul indreams said: i just started making some for my friends, and i can’t get them to lie flat – they always bulge up on the left-hand side. any suggestions? yours look pretty darn awesome! :) 14 Jul Marthe said: I really crave making some right now! I jused to make bracelets on request for my classmates when I was about 11, even the boys! 18 Jul Sally said: Love them!!! 18 Jul Johanna said: I’ve been hosting a little weekly craft night with some girlfriends and we’ve been preoccupied with these a lot lately. I think they’re cute and fun for summer time, especially updated with yarn or sturdy fibers instead of thread and simple brass clasps instead of a knot. 19 Jul Emily M said: I’m so glad these are coming back. I used to make tons of them when I was in middle school growing up. I just made a new one for myself – a 6 color chevron with a vintage button for the clasp – and love it all over again :) 22 Jul TB said: Cool!

I did it for lots of my friends. This make me remind the lost friends. Thanks.
