Project DIY: Fabric Bracelets

Perfect for spring accessories, take a peek at this lovely DIY bracelet tutorial.

Supplies Needed:
-- Sewing machine or needle and thread
-- Plastic bracelets (I thrifted these two for $1)
-- 1" strips of fabric
-- A dry double-sided adhesive (this is what I used)
-- Mini glue dots for touch-ups


Attach fabric strips together with a sewing machine or a needle and thread. Be sure to experiment with your fabrics! Try wrapping the bracelet first just to see if you like the spacing and length of the fabrics. Adjust accordingly.

Add a generous amount of adhesive to the bracelet and then slowly wrap the sewn fabric strip around the bracelet. Add adhesive as you wrap the fabric.

Inspect the bracelet and add glue dots to the spots that seem loose or unfinished. And then you're done! Stack them together and love!
