WOW!!  I'm LOVING everyone's versions of this totally HOT bracelet Smiley  And I'm TOTALLY stoked you added the full tute, I just added you into my tute list.  Thanks so much!

I love the little ring version someone made, and I agree with the braiding on both sides for a really cool belt with some larger link chain...and extending the length of chain for a necklace version would ROCK OUT!  I have TONS of embroidery floss, so I think one of these will be coming to fruition for me soon.

Thanks again for the full tute!!

Thank you so much for the tutorial! This is a great bracelet. I love all the ideas about using the same technique for purse strap or belt. I would suggest using tapestry thread if you are doing a bigger piece because you get more thread in a skein and it's a bit thicker.

Thanks for the tutorial!  The Disney link gave me an idea. Cheesy

I used an old Disney chain bracelet that I had for a while now.  Thing is, it's pretty old and missing a few of the Disney character charms.  So yay! idea!

Problem is though, I can't braid for the life of me.  Like seriously... I can speak 3 languages fluently, program a computer and write various code yet I can't do a simple braid.

But, after looking at it for a bit, the chain looked really similar to a chain stitch in crochet and the braiding technique looked identical to single crochet.  So armed with a size E hook and 6 strands of embroidery thread, I came up with this:





Can't wait to wear it tomorrow. Cheesy
