Suede and Embroidery Thread Bracelet

I consider these bracelets my version of an adult friendship bracelet. It’s fun and easy to experiment with mixing embroidery floss colors to create different looks. These little bracelets are also great because of their adjustable closures so you can remove or resize them as you desire. Try making these and exchanging them with your friends!
