Friendship Bracelet Tips

So I really love to make string bracelets but I really want to make ones that are harder like ones with names and things like that. Also the checkerboard one?

Does anyone have a tip where to find them or tips that would help and make it better or easier to make?

Please help!

Friendship Bracelet Tips
by: Christine Gierer

I know this isn't exactly what you are asking, but I'm putting the information and source links here in case anyone found this page while looking for tips.

Here are some friendship bracelet tips:

From Floss Friendship Bracelet Tips:

- The most important thing to remember when making friendship bracelets is to keep consistent tension on the threads in use. It is a matter of personal preference on how tight you want it, but it should not be too loose, the bracelet could fall apart.

- If the bracelet seems too tight, don’t worry. It will loosen after repeated wearings.

- It is ok if you make a mistake, as long as you detect it quickly. The knots can be taken out.

- Remember, the longer and more complex the bracelet pattern, the more thread you will need. Sixty inches per strand is the minimum you will need. Often, you will need a longer strand of one color than another.

- Leave at least 6 inches for the braids.

- Don’t be afraid to experiment with knots and colors. You never know when a masterpiece might be created! [1]

From: My Bracelet is Curling!:

- Sometimes a bracelet just won't stop curling. Here is the best tip: "Are you doing double knots? My bracelets used to curl because I only did one knot. Now that I do 2 knots, my bracelets don't curl."
