Friendship Bracelets and Beading Fun 25 Knotty, Dotty, Stripey and Sparkly Designs to Make! by Petra Boase

This title features fantastic projects to make with threads and beads, including 12 different designs for friendship bracelets. It shows you how to create knotty, dotty bracelet designs, groovy sunglasses straps, badges and scrumptious scrunchies. It features simple instructions and over 280 stunning photographs that show you what to do every step of the way. It is ideal for 7- to 11-year-olds, with easy projects to start off with, and more sophisticated ones for older kids. Friendship bracelets are a symbol of companionship, which is why they make such great gifts for your friends and family. They do not need much equipment and they are not expensive or difficult to create. In fact, you can braid a bracelet almost anywhere! Make them to match your best outfits, or try experimenting with different shades of material. You could also fashion identical bracelets for you and your best buddies to wear. The fun doesn't end there, though. In this book you will also learn how to decorate your creations with dangling beads and how to weave beads into bracelets and necklaces. You can even decorate your hairband, bags and shoes. These look very professional and are sure to impress your pals. Once you have learned the knack of braiding and beading, you can let your imagination run riot and design your very own range of accessories.
