Whisker Graphics November DIY

It's that time again!  Since it's the middle of November, the time has come for me to showcase another Whisker Graphics DIY.  I can't believe another month has gone by and this marks my fifth DIY.  Once again I couldn't resist using Divine Twine in my project.  I can never get enough of that stuff and find myself drawn to it every month (literally, I think I've used it every month).  My inspiration this month was friendship bracelets.  I have seen them pinning over on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to incorporate the multi-color Divine Twine.  

I opted for the airmail twine because it has three colors but any color(s) would work.  Since the twine is not a solid color, the pattern turns out all random but I kind of like it that way.  Random is good.  The technique is pretty easy and if you head over to my post on Whisker Graphics, I direct you to an easy-to-follow tutorial which teaches you the process with embroidery thread.  

Did you make friendship bracelets as a kid?  I don't remember making these but I remember making lanyards with that plastic string.  Stuff like this.  It was all the rage in elementary school.  I remember so desperately wanting to make really intricate ones.  I had a few friends who were really good at it.  It wasn't my thing and I could only complete the most basic designs.  I may have been creative but the plastic lanyards eluded me.  I wish adult me could go back and show kid me these bracelets because they seem easier and oh so much cuter.  

See my November project here and don't forget to check out the other great ideas from my fellow Whisker Graphics contributors.  With the holidays coming up, you can never have too much design and craft inspiration.  Happy Thursday!
