I should be studying for my exams but it was sooo boring (differential equations and thermodynamics) so I decided to take a break and make something again!
And because I had some scrap leather I chose to make some simple leather bracelet.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
The only material I used is leather which I was cutting with a knife. I also used drill for making holes. And in the end I applied a polish.
Step 2: Design
First step is to measure your wrist. I left some space here for the fastening.
Then make some sketches with dimensions.
I had to design it carefully because I had just a small piece of leather.
You can also sketch some ornamentation :)
Step 3: Cutting
Now just cut the basic shape out of leather and make holes for string (I used drill).
Step 4: Decoration
If you want too, you can make some decoration. I decided for a simple knot design.
I made it by pushing a blunt knife into the leather (as I don't have propper tools for leatherworking :D)
Step 5: Finish!
And you're almost done!
You can polish your bracelet as I did, or just add a leather string and wear it! :)
I hope you like it and I'm going back to studying :D
