DIY Tutorial - Braided Fabric Bracelet

{ This is my first tutorial so please let me know if you have any questions or trouble understanding }

What you need:
scrap fabric
needle and thread

Cut 3 pieces of fabric 1/2" x 16".

Fold the strips of fabric in half, stack on top of each other, and sew together.

Braid the strips of fabric to end and secure with pin.

For best fit, form a loop and try it on, making sure you can easily slide your hand in and out, but not too loose as to fall off.  Once you pick the right size, cut the bracelet at that length, being careful to not let it unravel, and sew the end just like you did the other to secure the braid.

Bring the ends together to form your bracelet and sew them together.  Now you have a fabulous braided bracelet.

To add a fun flower to your bracelet, simply cut out 3 different size circles of fabric.  Stack the circles and button on top of each other and sew onto the bracelet at the seam.
