  • I stuck around after my regular Saturday visit to the Irvington branch of @indylibrary for the monthly craft activity. Yesterday's project was making a bracelet using a Japanese kumihimo method. I made the pink & purple one there and the other this morning.

The first one has 7 threads and the second 8. (I somehow cut an extra thread to take home.) We selected a button and our colors, cutting them to 3 ft lengths. Then we threaded the button to the middle. All the threads then went through the hole in the middle of a disk. Both ends of each thread were paired in separate slots on the outside of the disk. Then we braided the threads moving them into different slots in a pattern.

Once we were almost at the ends the threads are removed from the disk. A loop is made that's big enough to fit the button. The ends are tied off with a separate thread.

Of course there are other patterns from what we did. Beads and other findings can also be added. Longer threads can be used to make a necklace. This is a craft that could be simple for little kids or something complicated, it all depends what you want to do.

It was nice to take a break and make make something different. The extra thread did throw me off as I kept messing up so it took me much longer to make the bracelet.

What types of craft projects do you enjoy solo or with the kids?
