Thanksgiving Turkey Design Tutorial

1. Pick 4 different colors. (The example uses black, brown, green & white). You will need 1 strand of black, 1 strand of white, 2 strands of brown and 3 strands of green.

2. Align string, fold in half, and tie knot ½ inch from fold forming a loop.

3. Attach your ½ inch loop to MYFBM under the butterfly clip.

4. This pattern uses 11 strings which exceeds the amount of slots that the MYFMB holds. You will need to have 1 loose string hanging on the far right side. The string hanging loose will be referred to as String #11. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 1 & 2 (black), slot 3 (white), slots 5,7 & 9 (brown) and slots 4,6,8,10 & 11 (green). You will have three extra threads, one each, white, green and brown that you will need to cut close to your knot. This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.
