1/4 or 3/8″ cotton twill tape (enough to wrap wrist 4x plus an inch – 36 inches or so for my daughter)
Plastic crystal trim (on a spool)
1″ piece of cord elastic
Plastic crystal button
Time: 40 minutes
Hem approximately 1/2 inch of the twill tape to start. Just as a note, when I use embroidery floss (DMC 25) to do a project like this, I used two strands of the six-stranded floss.
Tack on the crystal trim by stitching in between each bead.
Let the bracelet fall as you stitch so you are stitching the beads with the twill tape curved as it would be around your wrist.
To finish, cut the crystal trim and hem 1/2 an inch of the twill tape. Trim the remaining length of excess twill tape, if any.
To make the closure, fold a 1″ piece of cord elastic in half and sew to the wrong side of on end of the bracelet.
Make sure to go through the elastic a number of times.
Attach the button to the other end of the bracelet.
