This month we have been busy making some hand woven bracelets. These are perfect for a thoughtful gift for your closest of friends or family.
Alternatively you could make yourself a nice new accessory to wear with your own personal touch.
These are very cheap to make however take a bit of time but once you get the hang of it, you soon start seeing the bracelet come together.
- 3 different coloured Cotton embroidery threads
- A strip of Sellotape
- A pair of Scissors
Before you start you will need to cut two strands of each colour thread at 25 inches/64cm long. (e.g 2 strands both measuring at 25”,(65cm) of red cotton thread, 2 strand at 25″(65cm) of blue cotton and another 2 strands of green cotton thread the same length at 25″(65cm).
For the demonstration I have used Red, blue and green tapestry wool, as it is a little bit bigger so easy to understand.
Arrange the threads as alternate colours. For example start with Red, Green, Blue then mirror it back, Blue, Green, Red. Like pictured below.
Place a strip of sellotape across the threads onto a hard surface. Make sure you leave at least 8cm above the sellotape at the top, to allow for tying your bracelet together at the end
Follow the video below for the steps of making this bracelet.
