Stretchies

 Use our colorful 1MM Elastic Cord and 6/0,  8/0 seed beads and make a whole bunch of little bracelets we affectionately call Stretchies!    They are super easy to make and fun to wear and can also be used as hair ties!      Wear them in all different colors or make many in all one color!   The choice is up to you!  

This is a wonderful tutorial for learning how to tie the Horizontal Double Connection Knot.  The double connection knot is also a great way to finish off elastic cording.  Each of the overhand knots are tied using opposite cords so the resulting connection knot will never undo no matter how hard you pull the on the elastic!
