I’m now coming from a self-imposed friendship bracelet making break. For the last couple months, I was eating, breathing, and dreaming bracelets and patterns. Going through withdrawals, I wanted to make a new one. One that was quite simple, requiring no patterns. So, this is what I came up with.
I’ve been having smoothies (and lots of them) this year. Yes, I love me some Razzmatazz or White Gummi Bear from Jamba Juice, but making them on the cheap here at home works just as well. I’ve been freezing my strawberries, bananas and mangoes so I can make my smoothie without ice. Creamier. Yummier. Just throw in some fresh OJ and you’re good to go.
That was until I ran out of OJ. What do I do instead? I make some homemade version of a Banana Split.
Have you seen BAYO’s latest window display? The moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it. By it, I’m referring to the pinwheel rosette hangings, and not the clothes on the mannequins. Yes, that would be a first for me.
In the process of looking for the watch for my previous DIY, I found a pair of shoelaces. Immediately, I knew I could use it as a base or filler for another bracelet. Please note that this shoelace is tubular, not the flat kind.
When I first saw THIS friendship bracelet watch on Urban Outfitters’ site, I knew I had to have it. By that, it meant either having to buy it or make it. The tweet professing my love for this idea came months ago. I only got around to making it now.
This weekend, I suddenly remembered how I had a watch stashed away with the rest of my unused accessories. I don’t remember which cousin or visitor left this in my New York apartment. I never found out, and never used the watch myself. So, here’s how I made my version of this friendship bracelet watch.
