Hi Uncommon Designs fans, thanks for having me!

I’m Hilani, from over at Handmade by Hilani. I love to sew, and when free time of two boys allows, you can usually find me at my sewing machine.  I’ve been sewing off and on for 13+ years, and never seem to get bored by it.  

Now let’s get down to it!  I’m so excited to be here, in Trish and Bonnie’s corner of blog-land to share with you a fun tutorial for sewers of all levels.  Below is a project for a fun fabric bracelet I made a while ago. I posted to Instagram a picture of it, and shared in a variety of places.  Which then resulted in rave reviews over it’s fun look. I decided I {had} to share how to make it so those able to, could create their own.

Supplies Needed for Fabric Wrap Bracelet…
  • 1 Hand sewing needle
  • 1 Toggle Clasp
  • 1 16 1/2″ x 2″ scrap fabric
  • Scissors
  • Clear Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Iron
  • Fray Check (optional)
  • Sewing Machine Needle 12 or 14
  • Thread
 
Project Specs:
Start to Finish Time 30 minutes
Level: Beginner
 
 
Step 1:
Cut your strip of Fabric and iron flat
 
Step 2:
Place your clear ruler an inch from bottom of your strip and draw a pencil mark, along the middle of the fabric
 
 
This is what you should have when done
 
 
Step 3:
Press with an Iron both sides inward towards your pencil mark, like so
 
 
Then fold over both outside edges
 
 
 
Step 4:
Begin to pin along your strip
 
 
Now it’s time to sew….yippy!
 
 
Step 5:
Set your machine to 
Zig Zag stitch, 5 Width, 3 Length, 5.5 tension
 
 
 
Step 6:
Sew forward and reverse a little bit at the beginning and then begin to sew down the middle of your strip repeating the reverse and forward at the end, like below
 
 
 
Step 7:
Cut your thread.  Thread a hand needled with a long piece of thread and begin adding your toggle clasps
 
 
Bring your hand needle from the bottom side of the fabric, but not through the top layer.
 
This is how the bottom side should look when done.
 
This is how it looks when both have been added.
 
 
Step 8:
Now it’s time to tie our decorative knot at the 
center of the bracelet. 
 
 
Lay it side by side to make sure your knot is in the middle of your bracelet, as best as possible.
