Of course these are yet another find from pinterest and as soon as I saw them I loved them(Bow Bracelet)! I found the fabric at Hobby Lobby and knew that they would make great presents for some of my friends for Christmas.
Creating a template was the first step for me. I used it to cut out my large pieces and I also cut strips for the center while I was cutting.
My dad put buttons on the end of the large leather pieces(which you can kind of see in the first picture). I pinched it in the middle to wrap thread around it to create the silhouette I wanted. After that, I took some rubber cement and attached the leather strip around the center to hide the thread.
Lucky for me, my dad has a shop the size of some small homes, so he had all the tools and buttons that I needed. It's funny how craft time at the Nelson house almost always turns into a family event!
The final outcome was just what I wanted and I was very pleased with them! I gave several away for Christmas, but of course kept one for myself and it has quickly become one of my new favorite accessories.
