Denim bracelets


I have now made a tutorial for these bracelets. Take a look here.

A while back i decided to try to reuse as much of 4 old jeans as possible. So far they have been transformed into bowls, owls, a cover for an old chair and fridgemagnets.

Now the time has come to do something with the seams. First I thought about making coasters. I have seen some very nice coiled ones on the net and got very inspired, but then I started thinking about my much too large collection of beads and decided to make bracelets instead.

 I sewed on the beads and added a snap closure and then had a new bracelet easy as that… not really… sewing on the beads was really time consuming.



But I like the end result and they are really comfortable to wear.

I think that your blue jean bracelets are very cute and clever! I save old pieces of blue jeans, then never do anything with them. hahaha
