Have an extra measuring tape handy? Why not make it into a bracelet with these simple steps! This craft was inspired by Mark Montano from The Big Ass Book of Crafts 2 under the chapter "Wristful Thinking".
Step 1: Materials
To make this bracelet, you will need:
- measuring tape
- Velcro sticky dots
- sewing machine with zigzag stitch
- matching thread
Step 2: Measuring and Cutting
First, use the measuring tape to measure around your wrist, then cut off at least 1" extra.
Step 3: Sew Bracelet
From there, with your sewing machine set on the zigzag stitch, sew together the pieces, long end to long end, side by side. Then, fold the ends 1/2" in and straight stitch across to seal.
Step 4: Finish Off
Finally, use Velcro sticky dots to attach to both ends of the bracelet for the closure.
Step 5: Ready to Wear
This is the perfect accessory for someone who really is into sewing, like myself (I mean, I am just starting off, but, anyway...) or to compliment any type of outfit! I say wear it for both reasons, because you can get the most out of everything accomplishment!
