For this bracelet I used acrylic craft paint to put a freehand design on a piece of medium/thin suede. The closure, for now, is self adhesive industrial strength velcro. I used velcro to make it adjustable. I'll probably sew the velcro on later, but only if it doesn't cause the bracelet to bee too stiff or uncomfortable while wearing.
I made this one mostly to see if it could work, and how well the paint would last with regular wear. If it holds up OK I will make the next one by sewing the suede onto a metal bracelet blank. If I do that one I may do a complete step by step tutorial for it.
