{KISS How To} Flirty Fabric Bracelet

Keepin’ It Super Simple!

This is a great way to use up some left over fabric and create something fun and flirty!

This project is for all levels.

Skill Level- 1 Button

  • 2 different types of fabric
  • vintage buttons or pins
To be fair- this “how to” is nothing new.   Many of us used to wear these bracelets during the summer months.  (think late 80’s!)
Basic Instructions:
  1. Cut or rip 3 strips of fabric 36″ long x 1″ wide.  Fold pieces in half.  Straight stitch loop in place 1″ from edge.  This loop will be your “anchor”.
  2. Anchor your loop and begin to braid.  (You can see, I just used my knees and scissors.)
  3. After braiding a long section, wrap around the widest part of your hand to make sure it will fit.  Then secure the braid with a straight stitch.
  4. Overlap ends together, trim excess and stitch in place.  *Note- I tried to use a zig zag but my fabric was too thick.  So, instead I used a straight stitch and back stitched several times.
  5. Trim all loose threads and for a clean finish, wrap a scrap around the seam and hot glue in place.
  6. To make it fun, I added a fabric flower on one, tied a standard knot on another and just added a flea market find pin on the 3rd.
My daughter loves them and is wearing them to school today.  How fun!
Remember, Keep It Super Simple!!

Happy Crafting!
