I so started out this morning looking at fabric bracelets. It all started with a conversation with a dear friend yesterday about a fabric bracelet with pearls, fabric, and all kinds of stuff. Well, I got up and cleaned house in a hurry so we could go to Midland, TX to HobbyLobby and get some supplies. I bought some fabric, some beads, some wire, etc. I was so going to make a fabric bracelet. Well, that never goes like I plan! LOL
I started with strips of fabric that I sewed together-kind of an off white print. Two pieces. Then I braided in some copper chain that I picked up at HobbyLobby today.
I spent half the afternoon trying to figure out how to finish the ends!
Finally, I decided to sew a loop (copper) and a bar (copper) to each end for finishing and closures.
Then I decided to add all these beads.
Now you can't even tell it started out as fabric! Oh well, a happy misadventure! It turned out alright. I would so wear that! LOL
