As many of us did, I used to make friendship bracelets out of floss and during my hippie stage, hemp. Everyday I visit the blog Honestly WTF and check out if they have any new DIYs. They usually post at least one per week. Last summer they posted quite a few bracelet tutorials including making chevron friendship bracelets, which I have never done. I always did the plain jane versions with all the colors in a row.
Here's the link to the tutorial and my first attempt at a chevron style friendship bracelet. I was going for nautical but it looks more patriotic and I think I should have used more than 6 strands of floss.
