Kumihimo or Japanese Braiding

I don't have much to blog about today, so this is all I have.

I decided to do a mindless little craft that any kid could do.  I wanted to make a bracelet in Peach.  I always wear a peach colored bracelet. I just buy those rubberized ones which break after a while.  I thought if I could make one, it would probably last a long time and I could make another when it breaks.

I went to the store and bought a foam form and some thread.



It is really easy and quick.  You can choose the diameter by just changing the size of the thread.  then you make it as long as you wish.  My next one I will use beads to see how that looks.  I need to buy some connectors too.



If anyone wants to try this craft, there are a lot of youtube videos that show how it's done.
