Did you ever make those friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss when you were a kid? I was like, a master friendship bracelet maker on the playground, seriously. I still bust out some thread and make them occasionally, and I've also tried my hand at hemp bracelets and jewelry as well. (There was one summer where I had hemp jewelry decorating every part of my body I could attach it to... wrists, ankles, neck. I was stylin'.)
Anyway, I was just playing on StumbleUpon and I found this fun tutorial for a pretty flat braid that looks really cool. I think I'm going to try it tonight and make a friendship bracelet for my kitty. :) (Just kidding.)
