Olympic Countdown - 13 weeks to go - Friendship Bracelets

A few weeks ago I shared  my friendship bracelet tutorial showing you how to make basic friendship bracelets. Today I am sharing some Olympic inspired colour combinations that are perfect for showing your support for London 2012 or your county's athletes!

1. Great Britain 

I used two strands of each colour to get this extra thick stripe

Colours - red, blue and white

2. Great Britain Team Kit

This kit was released a couple of weeks ago and there was a lot of criticism in the media that it was too blue - I quite like it and the colours look great round my wrist!

Colours - navy blue, white blue, turquoise, white


3. Usain Bolt

My favourite sprinter and the athlete I will be supporting in the 100m final!
I usually finish my bracelets off with a plait - I think it makes it look neater and is useful for tying round your wrist!

Colours - black, green, yellow


4. London 2012 Mascots - Wenlock and Mandeville

This bracelet is made as two, one for each mascot and then tied together.

Bracelet one - one thread each white and orange
Bracelet two - one thread each white and blue

Make the bracelets the same size and then tie the ends together to create one paired bracelet


5. Olympic Rings - the universal symbol of the Olympics!

Colours - black, blue, yellow, green, red

Have a great weekend!

Love Rebecca

  3. This will be the 8th summer Olympics I've attended and I can tell you that the Olympic Rings bracelet would sell a ton. I'd take six, in fact. Name your price. -mark.overbaugh@gmail.com
