Sew together thin strips of fabric to roughly these dimensions.
You can make your piece longer if you want to make lots of bracelets, this size will make four.The width is about right to fit most wrists.
Cut a piece of stiff backing fabric to the same size, and then pin, wrong sides together.
Cut a 6" x 0.5" (15 x 1cm) inch strip of card, pin to your fabric, and then stitch around it.
Alternatively, if you don't want to bother with a template, just mark out your lines with a ruler and a 'vanishing ink' pen, see below.
Use whatever stitch takes your fancy.
Next, cut close to your stitching line, and then gently fray the edges.
Gather together your bits and bobs, and let your creativity run wild and free.
Sew a button (without a shank, so it sits tight to the fabric) at one end, and a length of braid at the other. To fasten, just wind the braid around the button, firmly, several times.
Dah dah !
Now I have to go shopping for my little girl's birthday tomorrow. What could possible be nicer than shopping for little girls ?
Pink and sparkly - here I come.
