Hi there,

I wondered if anyone had any books or booklets on makeing Friendship bracelets? Such as patterns for the knotting, weaving etc. My daughter wants to get back into this and we can't find the books we did have. When she and her sister were younger I remember them making tons of these one summer, it was a fun time together.

I'm really grateful for your help.

Have a nice day all,

Lena

I recently made this bracelet (w/out the charm).  The pattern is in PDF format when you click on view project.  The pattern is free on the JoAnn's website : )
