New Accessories to wear

I've been a busy little bee!  Before I get to what I've been up to I have a rant...just a little rant and it's not bad.  
Here it goes - I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrvve -> (that's LOVE in the crazy language) to wear accessories. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, broaches, scarves, hair flair everything!  Buuuuutttt this rant is about bracelets,  I don't know about you but I have come across some really cute bracelets {not the elastic stretchy kind}. I go to try them on and guess what....it doesn't go over my Fiona/Shrek hand....I mean who are the models for these things - skeletons...because I could barely get it over my fingers.  Okay I do have a pretty wide knuckle  maybe about 3 ½ inches.  Is that really big?  I don't think so, but whatever...my point is they don't fit.  I have to put the cute bracelet back and pout about how my sausage fingers barely made it through the bracelet. So I've come to my solution - buy stretchy or cuff bracelets oooooorrrrrr I can make them myself. 

Now I can show you what I've been up to.



I'm glad I have tons of scrap fabric to use.




 I'm going to make like a million of these bracelets!


Yup....in every single color too!


The green one above is by far my favorite!!! And guess what....they slip over my hand easily.  I love them and I am really happy with the results.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like them.

  6. Love these! I also would love to know what you used as the base? I did save some thick cardboard from inside a skein of yarn...I think that might work!

  19. I LOVE them! I totally agree about the non-stretchy bracelets. I don't like them super loose on my wrists, but I'm always afraid I'll never get them back off.:)

  40. These are lovely....I have the opposite problem...my hands are so small that everything just falls off again...maybe there will be some kiddie bracelets somewhere I can do this to?!

    Love your green bangle though. It's my favourite colour.
