Button Friendship Bracelets

I’m in the home stretch of my Christmas crafting marathon!  And some of the other bigger focuses in my life have pulled back slightly as well, so I hope to have everything done and ready to be shipped by this weekend.  Hopefully this will be the last or second to last old blog post I have to repost.  Thanks for sticking with me!

Today’s post is a bit of a throwback to middle school.  Friendship bracelets!  Although a bit more grown up this time around.  I love embroidery floss – stitching, knotting, braiding, tying, looking at, collecting… I do love me some embroidery floss.
