I love to think of this bracelet getting worn in and raggedy as my eight year old wears it through the summer. He seems to be the messiest of them all, but also the most sentimental–I know he won't be taking this off any time soon. As the days go by, the yarn and leather will get dirty and the bracelet will start to pick up that boy patina that only boys seem to be able to accomplish. By the end of the summer, it will carry little bits of our travels from the sands of Nantucket beaches to the mud of local CO mountain streams and even to the ancient cobblestone dust from Rome! (so excited for that trip!)
This bracelet is part of my commitment to make only handmade gifts this year. For more great tutorials and patterns for easy to make handmade gifts, check out my year of handmade gallery here or click the button below:
