I love the look of layered bracelets but I really don’t have a large collection of bracelets to draw from. I was clearing out some of the boys clothes and got the idea of cutting off their old jeans hem and using it as a bracelet base.

Cut off at hem with a 1/4 inch allowancw to fold and hem down creating a clean strip to work with. Cut to length and sew in snap for overlapping closure. Then take your favorite embroidery floss or cotton and wrap color bands on the bracelet. I didn’t wrap all the way around because the look of the distressed jean exposed makes me happy.

My daughter models the bracelet and I don’t think I’ll get it back. Looks like I’ll be making another one soon.
