A few months ago I scored a gigantic roll of woven belt material at the thrift store. It cost me $2.99. I was pretty pleased until I thought– What the heck am I going to do with this?
Supplies: Woven belt material, needle and thread, fabric flowers, bracelet end pieces, jewelry clasps, jump rings, buttons, cabochons and strong adhesive like E-6000.
Measure the belt material against your wrist, allowing for bracelet clasps on either side. Sew the bracelet and belt material together.
Repeat on other side.
A blank canvas!
Attach jump ring and fastener to one side.
Now for the fun part– decorating the bracelets. I made bracelets for 5-year old Mia and her friend Jasmine. They got to choose their buttons, cabochons and fabric flowers.
Turns out Jasmine is a pink cabochon girl. I used E-6000 adhesive to attach them to the belt material.
And for Mia, "more" is always better. She went with a red and pink color combination. I sewed the buttons on.
I went with a simple oversized fabric flower and button for myself.
