For those of you who are not Indian or just simply wondering, a rakhi is basically a sacred thread that a sister ties on her brother's wrist on Raksha Bandhan [ translates into " a bond of protection"]. Those wanting more info on this visit :
This year for Raksha Bandhan I wanted to make the rakhi for my brother [he's 10] because I have the time and would like to take the effort. But I'm facing a creativity stump because I want something a little different.Here are some pics of traditional rakhis [to give you an idea so you can give me ideas?]:
So as you can see , the possibilities are endless.
