Live Laugh Craft | Volume 5: DIY Beaded Suede Bracelet

Good morning my lovely readers! It’s been two weeks since my last LLC post so this week I want to share a quick bracelet tutorial. Moe and I are both participating in a Fall Friendship Bracelet Swap so we thought that we would post a couple bracelet making tutorial in case some of the other ladies need inspiration.

I had fun designing this bracelet. It is a little time consuming because you have to sew each bead but it turns out really cute and the color and style possibilities are endless!

Supplies: Suede cording, thread and needle, scissors, beads (2 colors), feather (optional) and a clasp. I added the clasp after taking the supply picture. Then I ended up not using the feather because it was too much!

step

Make sure to leave a small space between the loop and the first bead that you sew. You are going to use the loop to secure your bracelet at the end.

step2

Sew your beads in using a pattern or unique styling of the beads. I did 5 white beads to every 1 aqua bead. Once your finished you can add a clasp or just tie it onto the loop.

 

Thank you for coming by today! Don’t forget to check out Moe’s bracelet tutorial, she is posting video tutorial this week! :D Also, if you are interested in participating in the Winter gift exchange, email me at sewcalmama@yahoo.com for early registration.
