Hand-woven friendship bracelets

November 2012

Many of you may remember the “friendship bracelets” that were popular many years ago.

With only embroidery floss, it is possible to braid bands that can be used as bracelets, or as decoration for our SHIMA-SHIMA projects.
The inmates enjoyed making these bands so much that we will teach a new pattern every lesson.

With the holidays coming up, friendship bracelets will make nice gifts for friends and family.
