I’ve been so busy with school that I haven’t been diy-ing anything, but now that my project is completed, I’m back! Here’s a pretty easy tutorial for everyone—a nautical rope bracelet to add to your arm candy.
- Rope – 4 strands, 30cm each (I got mine from Daiso!)
- 2 Leather Strips – Cut to 3.5cm each
- Snap buttons
1. Make a loop by bringing one end of the rope across the other.
2. With the above image as a guide, thread your second strand through as above.
3. Bring the bottom right end under, over and under. It sounds complicated but following the pictures closely should leave you with right knot! :>
4. You should have this by now. If not, don’t fret! Just go through the steps again to make sure your rope was looped through correctly.
5. Get another strand of rope and follow the first strand through the loop.
6. Do the same with your last strand of rope. Follow your second strand through the loop.
7. Now you have your knot!
8. Pull your knot taut.
9. Snip your ends even for both sides.
10. Fold your leather strips in half to gauge if it holds your ends nicely.
11. Sew on your snap buttons.
12. One side done! Sew on the other side of the snap buttons to another piece of leather strip.
13. Tuck your rope ends into the fold of your leather strip and start sewing around the open edges to secure it.
14. This is how it should look when you’re done sewing.
15. Repeat for the other end of your bracelet, but do note that your snap buttons should be facing opposite directions, or you won’t be able to snap your bracelet on!
16. You’re done! Your snap closure should look like this if you’ve done it right. :)
Now that’s a +1 to your arm candy. Layer it on with all your other bracelets! Have a good week ahead x
