diy leather wrap bracelet

Today I'm going to show you just how easy it is to create your own, mighty fine recycled leather wrap bracelet. Better yet, after I show you how to make it, one lucky reader will win it! (Okay, my model took the actual bracelet and I'm making a replacement. Story of my life.)

DIY Recycled Leather (or Fabric) Wrap Bracelet

What You'll Need:

One strip of leather or fabric 34" x 1/2"
OR
Two strips @ 17" x 1/2"
One Charm - either a ring or with one loop on each end
(psst...the loopy charms are in the scrapbook section)

What You'll Do:

You can make this bracelet one of two ways.

If you have a charm similar to the one shown below and your leather is 34" long, you will simply need to thread the charm through and center it. Seriously, that's it!

If you have two separate pieces...

...you'll need to fold an end through each loop and stitch as shown.

Ta Da! Now go wrappy wrappy and tie.

Now. I have good news and bad news. The model took the "faith" bracelet.

Good news: I'm making a sleeker, thinner, even BETTER "gratitude" bracelet to give away.
Yeppers.

  1. What is it about your models? Or is that part of their pay? Love this idea!

    I am a follower, and put it up on FB. Right now I am wearing shorts, a top handed down from an aunt and a seed bead bracelet I made - no shoes.

  27. Oops. Forgot to say what I am wearing. A plum v neck tshirt with jean capris, bronze bejewelled flip flops that I scored on a serious sale, and my new 'simple truth' in a lacy filigree setting with my initial "E" on it. I am getting ready to start selling these. So far they have garnered quite the attention!
    Enjoy the day!
