I am always looking to add a strong feminine touch to my outfits, what can I say, I am a true girly girl. Even as an adult I love pink, lace, bows, hearts, anything with a girly touch. I can’t afford to purchase the entire Kate Spade line every season so I have become resourceful to say the least. I started creating little accessories from leftover fabric from my sewing projects and this is how my bow bracelets came about.
1/8 of yard of your favorite material (most likely less, you can even use scrap pieces)
Closure of your choice – for the child one I chose a snap
-Measure your wrist and cut a strip of fabric 1/2 longer than your wrist. Mine was 6.5 inches.
-Fold fabric in half (inside out- dull side out), pin it, and sew a 1/4 seam allowance.
-Once the fabric is sewn through, pull inside out using a safety pin.
-Sew the end shut and attach hardware.
-Make sure you measure this again to fit your wrist the way you like. You can always cut down in this step if too long.
-Cut another piece of fabric for the bow- I chose 4×4 to make a nice 3-inch bow.
-Sew the edges over 1/2 inch – I did this twice to add a seam as a detail.
-Fold in half – wrong side out and sew.
-Turn inside out – use safety in again if the hole is small.
-Accordion fold and sew gently to hold in place.
-Take another piece of fabric, fold over and sew the bow in place.
You are done!
