This is the story of my earbuds that made me very angry as they were always getting tangled everywhere I went.
So I bought embroidery floss in my favorite shades of green.
Then I remembered I really didn’t like green.
And then I realized I liked Wal-Mart even less, and didn’t want to go back so I stuck it out with the green.
If you ever made a friendship bracelet back in the old days you already totally know how to do this.
I did the “Chinese Staircase” stitch and it’s super duper easy. I followed the tutorial found here. ‘Tis a good one.
I started with about 1/2 yard of each color and alternated when it ran out.
I think I like green after all.
I did use a little bit of clear nail polish to tidy up the loose ends each time I changed colors. I also made sure to leave the volume control and mic clear of thread.
I love how they turned out and especially love that they never get tangled anymore!
I’ve already started to do this to my vacuum cord.
