Back in the day I was the queen of friendship bracelets. I remember spending my summers sitting with my sister and best friend working on the coolest bracelets ever! But this is one style of friendship bracelet we didn’t know about back then – the Jellyfish Friendship Bracelet. It’s call the Jellyfish Bracelet because the embroidery floss hangs down, like jellyfish tentacles while you’re making it.
It’s a little different type of bracelet because it uses this handy dandy wheel. I designed one and cut it of cardstock out on my Cricut Explore (using the pen and cut).
You can download the svg template to import into Cricut Design Space or use in Silhouette Studio.
You’ll need 7 strands of embroidery floss, each 20″ long
Tie the strands together, leaving a tail so you’ll be able to tie it once finished, and run them through the center hole.
The wheel has 8 slits, so leaving the one with START above it empty, run 1 strand through each of the slits. Then, beginning with the Start slit, or the empty one, count left 3 strands. Which is the left mint strand here.
Take that strand and move it into the empty slot.
Then rotate the wheel so the empty slot is once again at the bottom, and count up 3 strands.
Move it down to the empty slot, and continue turning the wheel and counting up 3 strands. That’s all there is to it!
Soon you’ll have a bracelet emerging in the center of the Jellyfish!
My cute niece made her first YouTube video showing how to make these. Please hop over and show her some love!
