This simple flower bracelet is perfect for adding some playfulness to a spring outfit. It can take a little bit of time, depending on your skill level, but is relatively easy. You could also use this technique for a necklace or to make a purse handle, etc.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

For this bracelet you will need:
  • Solid color fabric (scraps will work for this)
  • Fabric scissors
  • Sewing needle
  • Thread (that matches your fabric)
  • A pencil or chalk
  • A circular object for tracing (I used a pencil sharpener about 1.5 inches in diameter)
  • Thin stretchy cord (I used stretchy cord for jewelry making. Thread or embroidery floss would probably work, but you will have to make your bracelet a little larger to fit around your hand)
  • Pins (optional, not pictured)

Step 2: Cut out your shapes

Begin by tracing your circular object onto your fabric using chalk or a pencil. I have quite small wrists, and used 5 flowers in my bracelet. 5 flowers x 5 circles per flower = 25 circles for me to cut out.*

Cut out your required number of circles using your fabric scissors. It is much faster to fold your fabric over a few times and pin it before you start cutting. This way you don't need to cut out nearly as many circles, and they will probably be more uniform.

Using a light weight fabric and 1 1/2 inch circle, my flowers were about 1 3/4 inches wide, each.

These could easily be made into a lei. Even would work with fused plastic "petals". Ooh, ideas, ideas! When I try it out I'll post my pix.

Thanks! It is comfortable. I usually don't like to wear jewelry but this doesn't bother me at all.
