Have you seen these bracelets around recently?
So I set out to make my own. Michael's had a tutorial online for one and I looked at it basically to get a supply list then I figured the rest out as I went along.
- 4mm or 6mm beads (I used 6mm)
- Round leader cord (two 30" pieces for wrapping twice around, I had several extra inches at the end but I also have tiny wrists)
- Large-ish button
- Beading thread (whatever that is, or you could use beading wire...seems like that might be easier)
- Needle that's meant for threading jewelry (trust me on this one)
I threaded the button onto the leather cord first to get it out of the way. How you attach it will depend on how many holes your button has. Mine had four so I did this (I outlined the two different pieces in green and blue so it's a little easier to see):
Once you get to the length you want (or close to it...my loop adds an inch to the overall length) you'll need to make a loop to go over the button. I'm going to send you to another site for tips on knots because
