bff bracelets

Hello!  Before I show you the new jewelry I made, I wanted to share something kind of funny and a little irritating, actually, to me.  All the time that I have been sewing, I have been threading my machine wrong.  Wrong, wrong, wrong.  I think my mistake was just listening to my hubby when I should have read the directions myself.  And the weird thing is that it still sewed okay.  The only reason why I discovered all the wrong things I was taught was because I couldn't get nice even stitches on my current projects and it was driving me crazy.  I spent a lot of the day just looking online and then finally took out the instructions and oh my goodness, what a revelation!  I was even winding the bobbin wrong and putting that in the machine wrong too!  Geez, I thought my hubby read the directions but I guess guys really don't read any instructions and try to just wing it themselves.  So I had to give the hubby some scoldings when he came home but he still thinks his way is better cause it worked for so long.

Before I started my sewing projects, I made a couple of quick bracelets.  I got this super cute heart link chain and finally decided to make simple bracelets with them.  Then I metal stamped bff on the small sterling silver round discs and added them to the chain.  It reminded me of the time my middle school BFF and I got matching bracelets too.  So I made 2.

One for me and one for you.  These measure about 6.5 inches.  I think they're sweet.  Not sure if I'll be adding them to my Etsy store yet.  I signed up for a small craft fair so maybe gotta hoard some crafts so I can sell them there. 

Oh, Sister Stamps will be showing previews soon.  So check that out.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The bracelets are charming with the bff charm. The heart chain is a perfect match! I agree about men and directions....but don't tell my hubby...he thinks he's a genius! LOL!

Oh yeah, some men assume because it's a machine it's built in their DNA that they already know how it works. lol.. wrong!! hahaha!
