Sequin Cuff Bracelet

Materials

  • Bias leather tape, approximately 1 inch wide and 7 1/2 inches long
  • Multi-row sequin trim, 3/4 inch wide and approximately 7 1/2 inches long
  • Magna Tac, or other fast-drying fabric glue
  • Metallic cord
  • Metal button
  • Needle and thread

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Measure leather tape around your wrist, adding 1/2 inch on either side to accommodate the button closure; trim excess.

  2. Step 2

    Trim the length of sequin trim to the same size as the tape.

  3. Step 3

    Apply a thin line of Magna Tac along each edge of the leather tape. Press the sequin trim into place; let dry.

  4. Step 4

    Fold a cuff about 1/2 inch from front to back for the button side of the closure; apply glue and press into place.

  5. Step 5

    Cut a short piece (approximately 1 1/2 inches) of metallic cord to make the loop closure. On the opposite end of the tape, glue the ends of the cord to the back of the tape and fold a cuff over it from front to back. Glue to secure; let dry.

  6. Step 6

    Once glue is dry, sew button to opposite edge of the tape.

    Oh, I love these! Perfect for New Year's. Would make a cute belt, too!

    I learned from my late mom to crochet the loop. Makes the loop so much more elegant and if want, you can coat it with fabric glue or heavy starch to keep it from curling and being so hard to hold onto.
