If your mom is truly your best bud, then there's no better Mother's Day gift than a trendy friendship bracelet (or three), made by you — just for her. In about the same amount of time it will take you to catch up on one of your favorite shows (Mad Men or Game of Thrones, anyone?) you could have a fabulous from-the-heart gift in her favorite colors (or other sentimental hues shared by you two).
To get started, all you need is a safety pin, a sharp pair of scissors, and a few skeins of embroidery thread (also called embroidery floss) in your chosen colors. If you've never made a friendship bracelet before, check out these basic tutorials from the blogs Maycie After Five (basic) and Honestly WTF (more difficult).
