              I am going to make 4 more sets for my girls, but probably in a different color/style. Since I have all the jewelry making supplies now, all I will have to buy for the girls' sets are the beads - so they should end up being fairly inexpensive!


              These will be my "something blue."

                  Ok I finally sat down and made another set! Here are my step-by-step photos. These are really really easy to make! I really hope my instructions are helpful for you ladies!


                  1) I cut a long piece of stretchy cord (I don't know what it's actually called LOL but you can find it in the bead section of any craft store) and put about 3 1/2 to 4 inches of tiny beads on. This will be the part that goes around your toe, so you don't want huge beads that might be uncomfortable between your toes!

                  2) Next, fold the cord in half and start beading over both ends:

                  3) I tried mine on several times to see how far it came up my foot. I took beads off and added different ones at least 10 times until I got the length right. Then I added one big last bead before splitting off the strands again:

                  4) Then you want to separate the two strands again and start beading away! Again, I tried these on multiple times to see how many more beads to add. A lot of trial and error :)

                  5) Finally, tie them off! I tied about a million knots, LOL Here is the finished product!

                  And on my foot:
