Lock the Friendship Bracelet

Holly Crap, who let me loose on the socialmedia scene?? I have already told you about my twitter obsession (after I joined last week, I know totally last century of me to wait), BUT go figure I should'nt be allowed in social media public. Today I (definitely not on purpose) challenged one of my very fav baking bloggers to a bake off, yaiks! Check out Bridget's amazing blog here, and understand why a bake off with this pretty baker would not be a great idea (unless you are really into loosing, which I am definitely not).

Like I have said before, I have a hard time making friendship bracelets, not because I dont love love love them, but because they are SO time consuming. Thats why I made these once with a lock so I can take them on and off, YAY! For my fav friendship bracelet tutorial, check this out.

After following the tutorial I ended the bracelet by making the end square. (Do you see how I didnt do the last the mint floss all the way to the center? This is how you do it.)

Divide the loose strings in the center and braid them in to separate braids, when you have braided about 1cm on each side, merge them making it into one braid. Keep braiding for your desired length and tie off.

On the opposite side of the bracelet, braid the lengt for the bracelet to fit your wrist and tie on the button.

TATA, a reusable (glam'ed up with a tad of gold) friendship bracelet!


  1. I wish I'd had the patience to create one like this on my own!
    It looks really pretty, especially now for summer

  2. I started making one of these once. I got impatient and never finished it :(

  3. this bracelet is too cute, and i absolutely love the colors you chose!!

  4. This is great! I'm making a friendship bracelet now and have been wondering how to 'lock' it :)


  5. Nice bracelet. A lock is so handy. I don't have that so have to wear them permantly.

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog.


  6. Such a pretty idea, I kind of want to make one for my boyfriend, Jeremy since our anniversary is coming up in a few weeks but I can't decided on masculine colours!
    If you have a free moment I would so appreciateyou checking out my new coral + mint outfit post!

  9. Hi Katrine,
    Lovely colors in the bracelet u made, so cheerful.
    Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog.
    I went through several of your DIY's and especially like the neon sole oxfords ;) Temporary or reversible DIY's are my favorite. I used Contact paper several times and was very happy with the results as it comes off without living any residue.
    Also, I love your Norwegian dress in one of your posts. Are you originally from Norway? I am from Europe too, from the country of Georgia, former USSR. Now living in the U.S. with my hubby and two children :)

    p.s.I'm your newest follower (georgiagirl1971) and hope you will be back to mine as well.

    Sorry, it's me again. I just remembered you mentioned in your comment you might be interested in the similar tee/dress. The Mountain company actually sells adult maxi dresses as well as female tanktops. Some prints are atrocious but some cute and trendy. Here are the links (as much as I promote this company, you'd think I am paid for it, but i'm not :)

  12. I used to love making these as a kid. I bought a kit recently and forgot how long they take! I started one over a year ago and still haven't finished, lol! How do you keep it from not curling?!

  13. Okay now I want to make one asap! I think I've made one before, but it has just been SO long that I want to try it again now! :)
