CHARMING

If you're a little too old for the latest craze of Loom Bands, then this Fabric Charm Bracelet project is for you - and it's made up of items you may find in your crafty bits and bobs.

I used a scrap of floral fabric and some charms.

Using the sewing machine, I made a tube out of the fabric (hemming the tops for a tidy finish).

Using a chopstick, I turned the tube to be the right side out. This can be tricky, but perservere as it's worth it. To see how this is done, check out Genoveva von Lubeck's tutorial here

I then pressed the fabric, as the chopstick method does crease it somewhat.

I put the charms on to the fabric using jump rings. A bird, a pearl, a heart and a flower (the pearl and flower are off a broken necklace).

Finally, I tied two sliding knots to allow the bracelet to be adjusted.
