Made one of these bracelets tonight and thought I'd write up a little something. I didn't take pictures of every step for the band but I do have pictures for the folds required to make the bow. Photos haven't been edited so sorry if they're below par!
I'll try my best to run through the steps for the band. As for the bracelet itself, I think it's gorgeous and it's really nice to be able to make a bow that fits my wrist size because I have a tiny wrist making it practically impossible to find a bow bracelet which would fit me in retail stores if they were sold.
It looks like this:
The things you'll need are:
- the clasps as shown above (I don't actually know what they're called)
- needle and thread
You'll need to cut your fabric as according to the size you want for your bow. For my own I used the measurements 9.5cm x 16.5cm. I went by estimate and cut down and readjusted.
What you wanna do is fold the fabric in half to the middle, open it up again and bring the edges to the middle of the fabric.
Then you want to fold in the sides. Let the edges overlap one another. I used a bit more than 1cm for my overlap.
Flip over and pinch the middle and bring the edges in to form your bow.
Once you've got this sorted out you've pretty much got your bow. All you need to do for your band and the band around the middle is get a long strip of fabric, fold in half and sew to form a tube. Lay the tube flat so that the seam will be behind and pressing against your skin.
For the band I tucked in the fraying ends of the fabric and rolled them inside the tube and sew up the tube so there was a clean edge.
Here's a close up of the button/clasps I used.
Hope this helped somewhat! :)
