I really love trying out new to me crafts. I got some hemp, some big beads, and got busy.
I followed the directions here and due to some measuring and counting issues ended up with an anklet for myself instead of a bracelet. Abby liked it too, and lucky for her it's a perfect necklace/choker (not too tight) size. I did decide that if I make another one, I will not use beads that are that round because the strings around the side keep slipping. It was also pretty important to pay attention to which side I knotted on so I didn't start a spiral. All in all, I'm happy with the result!
