The best thing about making your own friendship ribbons is that your bracelet is as unique as you!
You can choose from so many popular friendship ribbons patterns and even design your own. There are plenty of colors of embroidery thread and you can use jewelry accessories for additional jewelry. But you do not have to stop here ... almost every type of string can be used to make friendship ribbons.
These are some recommended strings that you should try out if you have more experience in making bracelets.
embroidery thread is a favorite for bracelets as it is available in many colors and is usually packaged in strands of 8 meters (or about 24 feet in length). Embroidery thread is made of cotton for cross stitch, but can be made of wool, silk or nylon.
Häkelgarn is specially made to be denser and stronger than yarn. This thread is almost always made of cotton and comes in weights 3, 5, 8 and 10. Size 5 is closest to the embroidery thread color, while size 8 may work at double.
hemp twine is a combination of the natural linen fibers of the cannabis and cotton strands. The yarn is different in thickness and usually dyed in natural colors. Hemp is ideal for knotted jewelry because it is durable and maintains its shape well.
leather cord is a round leather strand that has been cut from the middle of the animal's skin. It is available in thicknesses from 5mm to 6.0mm and is used for braiding, beading and jewelery making.
paracord (Parachute Cord or 550 Cord) is a lightweight nylon rope that was originally used in US parachutes during World War II. The braided line consists of several interwoven nylon threads, so it is both strong and elastic.
Pearl Cotton As the name suggests, it is made of 100% cotton, is twisted and available in three sizes: 3, 5 and 8. Size 5 is about as thick as embroidery thread and sometimes easier to handle as no single thread slips off.
silk cord is a hand-rolled and hand-sewn piece of silk, which is then dyed. The cable is available in three widths: thin - 2 mm, medium - 3 mm and thick - 10 mm. Silk cord is most commonly used in jewelery making, as the cost of the average handyman is prohibitive.
yarn is a long, continuous fiber length and can be made of cotton or a synthetic fiber such as nylon or rayon. The yarn is available in many strengths. Therefore, pay attention to the selection of suitable knives.
