White Studded Leather Wraparound Bracelet // DIY

The semester is zipping right along. I feel like I'm constantly on the go!
But that doesn't mean I can't look cute while doing it.

Today we are making these funky studded wraparound bracelets. They are so easy! And they give just the right amount of edge to any outfit.

You can also find these exact beauties in my shop right here.




Read on to learn how!
SUPPLIES:
-Fake leather (white or any other color)
-Pyramid studs (Hobby Lobby!)
-rivets & rivet setter (from Michael's)
-X-acto knife
-Sewing machine
-on hand: scissors, pen, thread

HOW:

1. Cut the leather into strips long enough to wrap around your wrist twice plus an extra two inches.

2. Add your pyramid studs and rivets in whatever pattern you like. I did one stud then one rivet and so on.



3. Sew together the ends. IMPORTANT: pay attention to how to twist then sew because if you do it incorrectly, your bracelet will not lie flat on your wrist when worn (This part may look tricky, but I promise it isn't!) 

First, you want to twist the bracelet twice like the gif shows below:

Next, with the bracelet still twisted, put the two ends together, right sides touching.



Sew a straight stitch back and forth on the inside of the bracelet.

Then, fold the sides back out and topstitch both sides so they will stay down and look nice.



Trim off any excess.

And that's it!
