fabric covered bracelet tutorial

here’s a quick and easy way to make a cute bracelet!

you’ll need:

fabric, torn into a long strip about 1 inch wide
glue gun or fabric glue
plastic bangle (i found mine at the target dollar section)
fray check (sorry it’s not in the picture)

first, rip your fabric into 1 inch wide strip, then dab a bit of glue on the bracelet to start you off. secure fabric, and then wind around the bracelet evenly. continue winding around, every second or third time around, dab some more glue to hold it in place. finish with some glue and fray check edges if you wish.

admire on your wrist! (hand model, i am not. that makes me think of zoolander though. anyone else remember that movie? it was quoted many times by my brother and i in our teenage years. hehe!)
