Fabric Bracelet

 

A beautiful fabric project

 

 

​Vary the colours to suit any outfit

What will you need?

  • 3 strips of fabric 5cm x 30cm (2" x 12") or longer if required
  • ​Co-ordinating buttons
  • An assortment of fabrics
  • Loop turner or large safety pin​
  • Co-ordinating sewing thread
  • Needle, scissors, sewing machine

 

  • Fold each strip of fabric in half lengthways with right sides together
  • Stitch along the longest edge to make a tube
  • ​Turn each tube right side out
  • ​tuck the raw ends in and stitch up
  • ​Flatten the strips out with your fingers. You want them to be a bit puffy so don't iron them
  • Place the ends of the three strips together, one on top of the other

 

  • Stitch together across the end by hand or machine
  • Anchor the stitched end of your fabric to the table with a piece of masking tape
  • Plait together
  • When you run out of fabric, place the three ends together and stitch as you did with the other end
  • Bend the plaited fabric round and stitch the two ends together securely
  • Now all you need to do is stitch a button over the join to finish off your bracelet

​(we used two buttons one inside the other)

The finished bracelet measures approx. 19cm (7.5") round.

​Just make your fabric strips longer if you need it bigger than this. You need to make sure it will slide over your hand.

​Because the fabric is plaited it will stretch a little to make it easier to get on and off.
