That's so pretty! The colors are lovely, and I agree with shewolf, this would be spiffy for a purse strap. Cheesy

That is cool! Great idea too! Very nice. I'd wear something like that.

That is a very neat idea!
i have seen an afgahn made kinda like that but would have never thought of making it into a bracelet.
If you don't mind I want to use your idea and try to make some scrunchies out of it. Wink

I would love to make you a journal for a personal swap. PM me!

That is so pretty.  It's so simple, but incredibly effective too.  And I love the colour combination!

Wow--I don't think I've ever gotten so many replies.  This actually made it to the hot new topics.  Confused me for a second when I scrolled down the page and came to my own picture!  (yes, things like this make me happy)

I have already made another one in autumn leaf colors--gold, rust, burgundy, green, and I'm making one in all blues since I pretty much live in jeans during the winter and I figure that'll match anything I end up wearing.

Purse straps crossed my mind, but I'd use something sturdier than embroidery floss.  The chains do stretch some and I'd be afraid the weight of a bag would completely stretch it out of shape.  I also thought, briefly, of garland for a Christmas tree, but that would take months.  The bracelet took about an hour and forty-five minutes and it's only eight inches around. 

I slightly adapted the pattern from one in a book I have, but the basic idea is working a chain, slip stitch to make a loop, then work twice as many dc into it.  Then on subsequent loops, just slip the tail end of the beginning chain through the last completed loop before you slip stitch them together and continue on from there. 

Okay, enough babbling.
