I remember as a kid how much I loved making friendship bracelets. While wandering down the craft aisle at Walmart I spotted a cheap kit, so I just had to try it out again.
I had forgotten how fun making these bracelets are, and how easy they are to make. Unfortunately, since I had bought the kit at Walmart it was uber cheap thread and NOT the embroidery floss like it was way back when. So I went on a hunt for some better friendship bracelet kits and actual thread. Here’s what I found….

This nifty kit looks awesome for beginners with some really nice instructions and quality thread for braiding. Plus it even comes with beads and a clip board to hold the bracelet down while you are braiding. Sure beats holding it with your feet, huh?
