making bracelets

During my time of quarantine, I have been trying many different things because I have lots of time on my hands. 

I have been making string friendship bracelets. I made these bracelets before, but after a while, I would get bored and find something else to do. 

Since the beginning of quarantine, I have made five different bracelets. They are all unique in their own way. 

I started making the bracelets again after talking to some of my friends I will be going to college with next year.  Rylie and Kayla said that they would love a bracelet if I would make one for them, and I guess that gave me some motivation to start making the bracelets again. 

Making these friendship bracelets is a pretty cheap hobby. Most of the time, people can buy the colored string for only 33 cents apiece at Walmart. That is pretty cheap if you ask me.

All a person really needs to start this hobby is the string, scissors, and tape. I learned how to make these bracelets by watching YouTube videos. 

Recently, I have been going on Pinterest to get more ideas and to learn how to make different bracelet designs. 

Although I really do miss going to school and staying busy like I was before quarantine, I really do enjoy using this time to gain new experiences and to build my skills on hobbies I never really had time for.
