what girls can do :)

ready for the toturial ?
here you go ,
you need:

1.fabric for bracelet
2.fabric or ribbon for flower portion
3.beads or pearls and a piece of chain
4. 27″ of 3/8″ elastic

first thing first ,
cut 2 strips 18" long out of the strips you just tore

Lay your strips together and sew a seam 1/4″ away from each raw edge.
Sew two more seams 5/8″ away from the outside seams.

Cut three pieces of elastic, each 9″ long. This should fit around your wrist comfortably with about 1″ overlap. If you need to, adjust the measurements of your elastic.
Sew a small seam right inside the edge of the top casing only. You should not be sewing over the elastic. It should be just on the other side of the seam.
Move the needle over and sew a second seam, using your presser foot as a guide along the first seam. This should sew down the elastic. Repeat a third time.

Pull the elastic the rest of the way through the casing, and sew the three seams on the other edge.

Repeat with the other two casings and the remaining pieces of elastic.

Put all four snaps in. The two on the right side should face down and the two on the left should face up.

For the flower part of the bracelet I used 1 1/2″ strips of linen. I folded them so that they resembled a flower, with folds that were gradually smaller towards the center.

Sew on your beads, pearls and chain. I tried to keep the larger pearls towards the center, the smaller beads towards the outside.Sew your flower piece to the outside of the gathered bracelet piece.

All done!! What do you think?
give a try dears.
