Here is a little counting bracelet I made for GranddaughterStitches. It was quite easy. I simply bought some numbered beads in a local bead store.
Then I added these colorful beads (above) in between each numbered bead. I strung it all on elasticized beading cord, which is kind of like stretchy fishing line.
Here is the finished bracelet, before I attached the two ends together. I needed to wait till GranddaughterStitches was actually here, so I knew how big to make it.
And here it is on her little wrist. You can see that I added quite a few beads to make it fit over her hand. And I could have made the numbers go higher, except I hadn't bought any more number beads. GranddaughterStitches is so good at counting that she may be past eleven already!
