Skyler received a bracelet-making kit as a prize for best hula hooper at a birthday party this weekend and spent the better part of that evening begging me to show her how to make bracelets. I wasn't in the mood, but this child is a craftaholic so I gave in, flipped through the guide, and suddenly remembered how fun making friendship bracelets was as a kid. I never had much patience for super intricate designs so I chose the easiest one I could remember to teach her. We used some of the basic thread from her kit while I got my groove back and then I decided to fully commit and we went hunting for the three boxes of cross-stitch floss I had stashed in the garage.
Skyler's first creation which she sweetly bestowed up on me and my keychain.
One of my own creations that I was allowed to keep because it was too big for anyone Sky had on her list.
I have no intentions of showing her the crazy patterns you can make these things into. She'd never let me see the light of day if she knew...
