Fabric Bracelets

I have soooooo many projects that I want to start yet I’m overwhelmed by each idea that I can’t seem to start any of them. >.<Today I made a list of projects that I wanted to at least get started on, not only for MS but projects that I do for family and myself. Today’s project is pretty simple, I was inspired by this blog entry but I made some changes to how I made mine. I figure this would be perfect to offer on the MS store when its up. Hopefully it will be up during the fall season but you knowย  how life gets in the way. But here’s hoping. ๐Ÿ™‚

Materials needed

  • 3 or 4 strips of fabric (1×12 or 2×12)
  • second fabric (2 rectangles)
  • button and or Velcro
  • scissors
  • elastic band
  • sewing machine and or needle and thread

I love working with braiding, I get so excited when I learn how to braid a new style. I also enjoy making bracelets, so I thought I’d combine the two. I have small wrists so just adjust the size to what is comfortable for you. Mine was made with 4 1×12 strips of teal fabric. I thought about using different fabrics but I felt like the solid color would match with more outfits. But feel free to use different fabrics for each strip. I also chose to use elastic band and made loop so it could wrap around the button. I thought about using Velcro but I hate Velcro and really love buttons. XD I think the next time I make one I’m gonna sew the strips inside out that way the sides don’t fray as much. But that I still like the outcome of it and its pretty easy to make. Especially when you play around with different braiding techniques, I used 4 strips instead of the typical 3. I know impressive. ๐Ÿ˜›

Well I’ll see you in October with another project….sooner if my partners update earlier. ๐Ÿ˜€
