Flower Cuff Bracelet and Tutorial

I love to browse the Gymboree website for inspiration. (Among many others of course…) A few months ago, I came across the most darling bracelet for $9. It was super cute and I might have paid $2.99 for it had I been in the store, but not $9. (I guess there were plenty out there willing to spend the $9, because the bracelets are out of stock…)
I finally got one made! The bracelet is really easy to make. I took pictures along the way so I could create a tutorial on how to make a Flower Cuff Bracelet and share it with my readers.
Materials needed to make a Flower Cuff Bracelet
- Scrap fabric (depending on who it is for, you might need a piece up to 26+ inches.)
- Clasp for the bracelet (If the bracelet is for an adult, you could use a piece of ribbon.)
- Something to stuff into the bracelet. Ex: beads, marbles, pom poms (I used pom poms.)
- Something for the top of the flower. Ex: buttons, another flower, felt applique or other decorative item.
- Needle, thread, scissors, ruler, glue
Gather up the fabric of the first square to make a petal. Grab the 2nd square and without cutting the thread, stitch it the same way. (With the with the same thread.)
Repeat until you have five petals. Gather them as tightly as you can and tie off the thread. (I should have gathered might tighter for this photo, oh well…)
Tie a secure tight knot 1 inch from the edge.
Stuff your round object into the fabric tube.
I just used a marker to push my pom pom to the end…
Tie another knot right up against your round object.
Keep going until your bracelet is the approximate length you want.
Fold in the edges and make one or two stitches to hold it in to place.
Then insert your clasp and sew it in to the edge fold as you continue to sew the end closed.
I made this bracelet to match a dress that I have nearly finished. They will be so cute together!
