Cuff Bracelet Tutorial: Because She’s Worth it!

When thinking about what kind of bracelet or zipper pouch tutorial I wanted to share with you as part of the She’s Worth it Campaign, the very first thing that came to mind was a simple cuff bracelet.

Natural fibers, easy to make, and one that requires little to no sewing skills.

  • felted wool
  • twill tape
  • button
  • needle/thread
  • fabric paint
  • paint brush/stamps
  • sewing machine – optional
  • scissors

DSC_00031. Cut a rectangle from a scrap of felted wool that fits around your wrist snugly, but not too tightly. Choose something that’s soft and feels good against your skin – and make sure the fabric stretches horizontally [around your wrist].

DSC_00062. Cut a piece of twill tape that’s a couple inches long, depending on what word you are printing.

DSC_00143. Carefully sew the twill tape onto the center of the rectangle. This could be done with a sewing machine or by hand. [you may find this step easier to do after you paint your letters on - it's your choice] The two cut ends will fray, but I really like how this looks.

DSC_01365. Cut a small slit on one end that is just large enough for your button.

DSC_01386. Hand sew the button onto the other end.
