Could someone PLEASE rescue me???
I have so much fun weaving these leather bracelets that I can't stop it!
In fact - I have so many by now that I'm happy to give some away. So - If you like to have one let me know!
(They are all gone - have fun wearing them...)
But if you rather get your own infection, here is how I made them:
(Don't say I haven't warned you....)
I got 1 meter long leather cord and cut it in half. This length fits my wrist nicely but you might want to start your first one with a longer piece to figure out your personal perfect length.
Next you need some sort of colored string and a bead with a large enough hole to fit all endings through. I got all supplies at my local crafts store.
Start folding your leather in an exact half. Tie your colored string around it with a knot to form a nice loop. Wrap around a few times making sure you tuck the endings. Cut off the rest of endings.
Now start weaving in a figure-8 pattern around your two leather cords. Stop a few inches from the end.
Again wrap a few times around tightly and secure with a knot. Place a drop of glue onto the knot and cut the string ends.
Add the bead and another knot - you are ready to go!!!
Another one, right?
You can find my jewelry on Etsy!
