Hello everyone! I will make no excuses for the hiatus, instead I am going to give you a lovely tutorial: enjoy!
We’re going to be making a fabric wrapped bracelet. You only need a few materials to make this awesome project for yourself or as a gift (no selling please!)
Materials needed: a bracelet of any sort (you can find tons of cheap plastic ones at thrift stores)
a piece of fabric that you like 12 in by 12 in about
and some Aleene’s fabric fusion ( found this to work the best)
You want to cut some slits into your fabric about 1/2 inch to an inch wide. You want just enough to get a tear started.
Tear a few strips, I usually do 4-5 because I wrap tightly and close together. The longer the strips are the less you’ll need.
You’ll want to start the bracelet by tightly holding one end of the strip to the inside of the bracelet. Wrap tightly 2-3 times around the same area to get a good hold.
Continue wrapping tightly leaving about 1/2 an inch between the frayed edges. You want to really get a tight wrap going because you won’t use glue until the end.
Eventually a strip will end. Make sure it ends on the inside of the bracelet (cut if you need to)
Then start wrapping over top the end piece the way you started the bracelet and continue.
Woohoo! Wrapping is done. Once again, make sure it ends on the inside of the bracelet. Now grab your glue!
Now put a thin line of glue on top of your loose end. You don’t want too much, we’re going to smear it around anyway.
Now rub the glue onto the edge, making sure that you have every part of the loose end glued down.
You can always add more glue if you need it, but really smear it in there!
Now let dry and wear!!
I’m still new at writing and photographing tutorials so any suggestions or comments on how to improve them or what you like: just let me know! I’m more than open to your thoughts!
