materials

  • Topstitched leather strap, 3/8 inch wide and approximately 15 inches long

  • Strung sequins, 1/4 inch wide and approximately 13 1/2 inches long

  • 527 Multi-Use Glue

  • Slide buckle

  • Masking tape (optional)

steps

  1. Measure the strap around your wrist, wrapping 1 or 2 times, depending on the look you want. Allow 1/2 inch on each end for flaps to attach the buckle. Trim excess.

  2. Trim the length of sequins 1 1/4 inches shorter than the strap. Remove 1 sequin from end. Fold thread under, and attach with glue. Center the sequins on the strap to allow for 1/8 inch of bare strap on either side. Apply glue and secure sequins in place; let dry.

  3. Separate 2 pieces of slide buckle. Working with 1 buckle piece at a time, slip the end of the leather strap through the attachment end of the buckle.

  4. Apply glue, and fold over the flap of the leather strap around the attachment; hold in place to set. If you like, wrap the glued strap with some masking tape to hold in place till the glue dries.
