Friendship bracelets, those timeless 1980s accessories made from embroidery floss or perle cotton, are still popular with tweens and teens. The basics are simple enough—a combination of braiding, weaving, and knotting that lives in the muscle memory of any woman who has attended summer camp since the late 1970s—but there are a lot of possibilities here, from slim, bead-embellished designs to wider, multicolored arrangements with chevron or wave patterns. For crafters who prefer the hippie look, there's also a section on creating hemp bracelets using the same knotting, braiding, and weaving techniques. Each design includes diagrams and instructions; a brief introduction serves as a reminder of the basics. VERDICT Kids are still making friendship bracelets, and this nostalgic collection will pique the interest of crafters young and old.
