This is a variation on an original Teahab tutorial I made, which is one of my most popular tutorials to date (it’s currently big in Japan…) I wanted to spruce it up a bit as it’s well over a year since I first posted the project. It’s pretty spectacular how much my personal blogging style has changed, and how much I wish I’d known back then! It just makes me think If can come this far in a year, imagine the next one… Ok, getting carried away here. Tutorial instructions below.
Note- You need 6 ribbon ends for each bracelet.
- Cut a 1 inch thick, metre long strips of neon fabric, fold in half and sew along the length.
- Turn inside out to hide the stitching (there’s no need to iron) and cut into three equal pieces.
- Attach a ribbon end to one end of your fabric.
- Do the same for the other two strips.
- Using a jump ring attach all three strips to one end of the charm bracelet.
- Take the strip furthest from the chain, weave it over the second strip and then under the first.
- Take the strip through the fourth link in the chain, going from underneath through to the top.
- Repeat steps 6 & 7 threading the next strip through the fifth link.
- Keep repeating steps 6 & 7, moving down the chain as you go.
- Stop once you’ve reached the fourth link before the end of the chain.
- Trim the strips just slightly shorter than the end of the chain and attach three more ribbon ends.
- Plait the three strips together a couple more times to keep them neat and attach to the end of the chain using a jump ring.
Repeat these steps to create the other bracelet.
They’re so bright, I love them! Which ones do you prefer?
