New and Improved Friendship Bracelets

Do you remember making friendship bracelets as a kid? I sure do - although I had completely forgotten how to do. My daughter decided that she wanted to start making them, so we googled instructions and I think we realized that she would need more help at it than we thought - so, I ended up having to make a few before I really figured it out enough to show her.
These are what I've come up with so far, and I love them! They're fun to do while you're watching a movie (makes you feel like you're actually accomplishing something besides sitting on your butt). I added the charms and the button closure (vintage button, of course) so that they can be removed - not like the old days when you just wore them until they fell off. A friend of mine is having a birthday this week and this is what I came up with for a gift for her - I made the bracelet and then decided that that wasn't quite enough, so I made the coffee cozy too.

Then, this is what it looks like all wrapped up pretty.
Maybe I'll get into jewelry making now, who knows?
