This bow bracelet tutorial will help you make cute gifts using fabric scraps.
This bow bracelet is a cute and quick gift to make! It would make a great stocking stuffer for the holidays. I’m participating in a round up of Little Gifts made with fabric, and if you enjoy sewing you will love these project ideas! Make sure to read till the end of this post to learn how to see the other projects in the sew along, as well as how to enter to win prizes!
Supplies Used in this Bow Bracelet Tutorial:
- Fabric Quarters or fabric scraps
- Fusible Webbing
- Needle & Thread
- Buttons or Cabochons
- Jewelry Glue
- Crimp Clamp Finding
Start by cutting two rectangles from the fabric quarter. The bow fabric is 5″ x 4″. The bracelet fabric is 5″ x 1.5″. You can adjust this to make the bow or bracelet bigger or smaller.
For the bow, iron down the edges of the fabric.
Place a strip of fusible webbing on the wrong side of the fabric. Fold the edges towards the center and iron them in place.
Fold the unfinished edges towards the middle of the piece and overlap them. Pinch the center between your fingers and sew up and down through the folded fabric several times to hold it in place.
For the band, fold and iron the edges down. Place a strip of fusible webbing on the wrong side of the fabric and iron it down.
Stitch the bow onto the fabric band.
Crimp the clamp findings onto the ends of the fabric band, and add clasps to the findings.
Use jewelry glue to add a decorative flower to the center of the bow. You can also stitch a pretty button on instead.
I hope you enjoyed this bow bracelet tutorial! They make cute gifts. You can coordinate it with the bow tie necklaces I made several years ago. For more fun little gifts to sew, check out the Sew Along organized by Underground Crafter.
How the Little Gifts Sew Along Works
Every other Tuesday from January 1 through December 3, 2019, we’ll share a free sewing project for a little gift! These gifts are small enough to be “stocking stuffers” if you’d like to get a head start on holiday crafting, or you can gift them for birthdays and other events throughout the year. Each little gift will be made from 1-4 fat quarters of cotton fabric (or a yard or less of fabric, if you don’t have precut fabric on hand).
And, because sew alongs are more fun with prizes, we’ve reached out to some of our favorite companies to get some amazing end-of-SAL prizes. You can find out more about the prizes and enter for your chance to win here on Underground Crafter!
