12 Diaz de Navidad con Nano y Sushi: Day 1 Handmade Bracelet/Necklace

Hello there! It's me Sushi (Susi) and I'm first! Booyaa! Ok, so my first project is a handmade bracelet/necklace.  My daughter's favorite color is blue so I decided to give this to her...I should have wrapped it and saved it for Christmas but I'm so inpatient! No bueno, no bueno. =)

There are several tutorials out in You-Tube but my favorite and VERY easy to follow video is aglanceatmyworld: DIY Wrap Bracelet.   I only had to look at it a couple of times to understand the steps and in 45 minutes I made this! I'm a proud mama!
This would be a great Christmas gift and it's so easy...I might be making something similar to this for my giveaway...hmm...=) I hope you enjoyed my project and thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to become a follower and leave a comment after each project to be entered for our 2 giveaways!

What did I use?
Suede Cord (Walmart)
Beads (Walmart)
Owl (from a RAK)
Embroideryfloss (my mom's stash)
