How To Make Wide Chevron Friendship Bracelets

DIY How to make quick and easy wide chevron friendship bracelets

This friendship bracelet is a lot easier to make than it looks because although you have quite a few strings, you deal with them in twos instead of individually. Petunia is 9 and she made one for her friend. It's been a great project that kept her busy in fits ands starts for about a week.

OH SO PRETTY the DIARIES has a great tutorial for this bracelet that's clear and easy to follow.

I got the idea for this adding a button to the bracelet from this tutorial from friendship-bracelets.net, but my way was simpler. Finish the bracelet, get some thread that will blend in and just sew it on.

Creating a button hole is easy too. You can check that tutorial out on friendship-bracelets.net as well. All you do is skip the step connecting the two sides in the middle point for about 3-5 rows, depending on the size of your button.

To end it, because obviously it's all in a V-shape, I just evened off the edges with knots as well as I could and tied them off.
