Here’s the video episode:
Mother’s Day is coming up soon. This bracelet would make a great present. You can really customize it for your mom’s likes, favorite colors. You can even use special fabrics or pieces of fabric from special pieces of clothing.
These are quick and simple to make and look great with a bunch stacked on your wrist!
- 3 different pieces of fabric. (Or you can use the same fabric for all three strips.)
- Wire – you can use 20 gauge, 22 gauge or 24 gauge half hard round wire.
- 2 4mm jump rings
- Wire cutters
- Round nose pliers
- Chain nose pliers
- Another pair of pliers, such as bent nose pliers
For a nice, neat look, cut the strips. I wanted a more whimsical, shabby look, so I made a snip in the fabric and then ripped the rest of the way.
Then continue making wraps.
You don’t necessarily need to make the wraps perfectly neat because I’ll show you how to cover them.
Pull on the wire and fabric to make sure everything is secure.
Continue wrapping around and then wrap the other end. Trim off any extra wire.
If you prefer, you could choose to leave the excess fabric.
(For help with opening jump rings, I show this in the video.)
Or add some bead dangles.
Add bead dangles. For help with that, click here: How to make a bead dangle.
