Authentic Pondo and Gingham Bracelet

I've been telling you about authentic pondo and even showing you some pictures of the start I made on this bracelet for some time now. The bracelet took very little time to make, but getting the tutorial illustrated took some doing. Finally it's finished!

I had fun making this bracelet.  I adore the ease of authentic pondo as opposed to the Pondo/African circle stitch that is so very popular now.  It doesn't look exactly the same, but it makes a beautiful, flexible fabric that is very comfortable to wear.

The tutorial for this design is now available in all three of my catalogs for your convenience.  I know the shopping carts are different and some have their favorites.

Now back to seeing what I can do with ropes.  I'm not as inventive as Heather Collins, but I'm working on it.
