Step 1: Step 1: What You Need...

Leather strips (1/8" width) & leather cord

It's better to have similar color chords.

Step 2: Step 2: Cut and Gather....

Cut the leather strips to about 7 inches long. I made seven strips.

The strips shouldn't all be exactly the same length. It's better if they vary by about a quarter inch (i.e. some 7 1/4" and some 6 3/4". This will make for a more natural bundle.

Step 3: Step 3: Tie....

Tie the strips with a cord.

Leave the chord about 4 inches at the end and make a knot as shown in the drawing.

Use the same cord to tie for the other end so you will create neat knots without cutting the cord. (see the drawing)

Step 4: Step 4: Trim and Adjust....

Trim the end of the strips of the outer the knots (shorter is better).

I cut the ends of the cord about 3 inches from the knots. I recommend you to check how it fits on your wrist before cutting it too short.

Step 5: Ta Da!

All done!!
