A close friend of my daughter's returned from Cape Cod with a cloth and ribbon bracelet that she'd paid $30 for. My daughter asked me if I could make them and I of course said "Yes! for under $2." Never will I say this again. I totally hate this kind of sewing, too fussy, too small, too many defects too visible. It's why I don't make clothes at all. I like sewing straight lines on things that match up perfectly. Here's the bracelets. The store bought version is the one with the anchors.
