Putting Beads In

Now, this project simply shows how to add beads into square or circle. You can always add beads into other projects, but this is really the only way to add them, beads don’t seem to add well into other projects. If you’re interested in purchasing the little pony beads and you can’t seem to find them anywhere in stores, you can always order them offline.

 

You will need:

  • Two strands of boondoggle, the same length
  • Your pony beads

Optional:

  • Keyring

Wrapped Twist

I love this boondoggle project a ton. It really just looks so cool. I always use two colors as my base and then add a bright pop on top, for this tutorial, I didn’t. I love when I contradict myself. But regardless, it still looks awesome.

 

 

You will need:

  • Two strands of boondoggle, the same length, could be the same color but don’t need to be
  • 1 strand of boondoggle, about a half yard longer than the other two.
  • 1 strand of boondoggle, about a foot and a half long–this will be you’re wrapping strand so remember that.

Optional:

  • Keyring

Fluted Columns

While I was told that my sister created this project. She begs to differ. I’m not sure if she did or not, but I am sure of how to do it. It looks complicated but if you just pay attention to what you’re doing, you will have no problems at all. The trickiest part of this project is making sure you don’t accidentaly¬† snag another strand. You can add other strands onto the project too if you want, but this is the basic stitch of it.

You will need:

  • 4 strands, all the same length
  • 2 strands, 2/3 of a yard longer than the rest.

Optional:

  • Keyring

Ending Stitches

I love to end my projects with this finish. I always want to be able to see the actual stitch and the woven pattern.  While some people perfer to have the ends tied off I perfer to burn them.

Tornado

This stitch offers a variety of options as far as how to make it. You can use two colors or four and adding a simple quad stitch every now and then really switches things up. It’s also a great stitch for making a keychain for someone you love!

 

You will need:

  • four strands all the same length

Optional:

  • Keyring

Quad

A double square basically. There isn’t much of an appeal to the eye with this stitch as it doesn’t do much, but if you want to make the larger circle projects, you need to start with this.

 

You will need:

  • four strands all the same length

Optional:

  • Keyring

Butterfly

As far as being a boondoggle stitch, it sure is. But this is not one of the typical traditional boondoggle stitches. You need no previous expirence to made this project and it is actually a bit of a pain in the rear end. Its hard to start and end this project as there isn’t much you can do to make it look pretty.

 

You will need:

  • 2 strands of boondoggle, the same length

Chain Link!

Considering I have about seven of these in my collection this seems to be one of my favorite stitches. Probably because this is the biggest gateway stitch there is in the boondoggle world. This is a three part video series but if I had made it into one video…I would’ve had a television show!

 

 

You will need:

  • 4 strands of boondoggle, roughly all the same length

Awareness Ribbon

Show support for the disease that affects you most. This is really easy to make and this project can also be coverted to make a little fish. You can also do this project with circle, but it doesn’t work well with other stitches for some reason.

 

You will need:

  • Two strands of boondoggle, the same length. If you want to make it an awareness ribbon, use the same color or the color and clear.

Boondoggle Bracelet

I would never wear an actual boondoggle bracelet, it would clash with my Tiffany. So this is deffinatly a simple project. People always think its really cool how the bracelet looks. This can be done with any boondoggle and not just the square, but strting with the square will give you the best results to get the hang of things.

 

 

You will need:

  • 2 strands of boondoggle the same size, any color
  • Pushpin
