SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
- 1 LDB Multi Triangle Fat Quarter (18" x 21")
- 1 LDB Melon Arrow Fat Quarter (18" x 21")
- Craft or hot glue with glue gun
- Small plastic beverage bottle (appropriate to wrist size) with 3" or larger straight section
- Permanent marker
Finished Project Size: Approx. 1/2" high x 8" circumference
Read instructions before beginning project. Do not prewash fabrics before cutting.
- Remove label and clean bottle. Cut away the flat area of the bottle.
- Measure one 1/2" ring and mark with a permanent marker; cut ring along marks.
- Remove any selvages along the short ends of the fat quarter by snipping the edge of the fabric then ripping them off. Note: Selvages may have small holes or look thicker/lighter on the wrong side of the fabric. Snip 1/2" from one long edge and tear along the long side to make a ragged, torn edge.
- Measure and snip 2" along the short edge from a fat quarter and tear across. Tear one to two strips for each bracelet or as many as needed to cover it. Fringe the edges further for more texture if desired.?
- Fold strips in half lengthwise with wrong sides together, matching torn edges and firmly finger press (or iron) the fold.
- Beginning with the plastic ring and a folded fabric strip, hold the strip so that the torn edges are on the left. Place one end against the inside of the plastic ring and glue in place. Bring the strip to the front of the ring and begin snuggly wrapping it at an angle. Wrap the strip under the bottom edge of the ring then to the back.
- Continue wrapping the strip around the ring, allowing about half of the previous wrap to show. Wrap the entire ring until you overlap the first wrap, covering the starting end on the inside. With the strip end on the inside, cut off the excess and glue in place. Repeat to make a second bracelet from a coordinating fat quarter.
Finished Care Instructions: Wipe with damp cloth if needed.
