We all know that I am addicted to crafting. And I have been dying for a denim bracelet. I searched the internet for some cool designs to try to recreate and came up with nothing. Then I remembered making friendship bracelets as a kid. I figured I would try that same technique with thicker strands of denim. What the hell, I am throwing the jeans away anyways.
Ok, so first I cut strips of denim the length of the leg part. (Yes, the entire length).
Then, I stitched the 4 strips together at one end.
Starting with the stitched end, I started knotting the pieces.
Take the 1st and 2nd pieces and make sort of a #4 with them
Tuck piece 1 under piece 2 and pull the knot all the way up.
Continuing with piece 1, move down the bracelet knotting the same way with piece
1 & 3 and piece 1 & 4
Start back at the begining of the bracelet and continue until it is long enough for your wrist.
Stitch a few stitches at the end to keep loose ends neat and together.
Cut off any dangling pieces after the stitching.
Then stitch the begining part to the end to form a circle.
Because the stitching looks all ugly, I took a piece of scrap and wrapped it around the stitching.
I put 2 stitches in an X to keep the wrapped piece in place.
And it's all done!!!!
Your new bracelet!
