Scrap bracelets or diy bracelts

Hi there. Grabbing a cup of tea..

After this post and cutting up all the girls pants. I had (still have) a stash of left over fabric scraps.  So my oldest daughter and I went to work to see what we could create. 

We came up with some fun bracelts.

We used the scraps from the cotton pants but t-shirts would work great.
We mixed in one piece of ribbon for both of the bracelts we made.
This is a great way to help teach your daughter how to braid.:) Autty had a good time
  (frustrated on occasions) learning to braid with three pieces.

After the three pieces are braided together we then took a small piece of elastic and looped it through the braided part and then I simply hand stitched the elastic piece together.  I also snipped the endings of the ribbon and fabric so they were even.


Here is the finished product. :)
 Made by Autty and modeled by Autty.
We did these quite some time ago but I just haven't posted them (if you only knew how many back posts I have) :) and then just today I saw someone else online with this same idea except the bracelt was targeted for women. So hey I bet there is several variations to this idea (of course).

I think we are going to make a few more of these and send them as little gifts to some friends in the States. Hey, it's the little things that count, right.:)

Well our dear American friends that live here with us in this 'west corner' are going to be going to the States for part of this summer and I want to send some homemade gifts with them for my sisters and mom.  How in the world I am going to fit it in when they leave in 10 days and my daughter has a 5 year old b-day party and I wanted to make her a skirt, I do not know??? But I will give it a try. I'll let you know what I've been up to.

Grateful for the wild poppies and the spring breeze ~becky

Keep in touch I enjoy hearing from you.

Cute! It's something the older kids can do with little help. I'd love for you to share at Fun For Kids Friday.
