diy leather wrap bracelet

Today I’m going to show you just how easy it is to create your own, mighty fine recycled leather wrap bracelet. Better yet, after I show you how to make it, one lucky reader will win it! (Okay, my model took the actual bracelet and I’m making a replacement. Story of my life.)

DIY Recycled Leather (or Fabric) Wrap Bracelet

What You’ll Need:

One strip of leather or fabric 34″ x 1/2″
Two strips @ 17″ x 1/2″
One Charm – either a ring or with one loop on each end
(psst…the loopy charms are in the scrapbook section)

What You’ll Do:

You can make this bracelet one of two ways.

If you have a charm similar to the one shown below and your leather is 34″ long, you will simply need to thread the charm through and center it. Seriously, that’s it!

If you have two separate pieces…

…you’ll need to fold an end through each loop and stitch as shown.

Ta Da! Now go wrappy wrappy and tie.

Now. I have good news and bad news. The model took the “faith” bracelet.

Good news: I’m making a sleeker, thinner, even BETTER “gratitude” bracelet to give away.

  1. What is it about your models? Or is that part of their pay? Love this idea!

    I am a follower, and put it up on FB. Right now I am wearing shorts, a top handed down from an aunt and a seed bead bracelet I made – no shoes.


  2. Models, humph, such divas 😉
    I am wearing pajama pants pink and white stripes and a peasant top with 2 holes in it but it is too comfy to throw away.
    In defense of my pj’s at 6:30pm. We just got home from dinner at Chili’s and daughter and I were covered in chocolate lava cake 🙂 Yum.

  3. love the bracelet! might have to make some for friends!~

    at this moment i’m wearing… an old gym tshirt from 1999 (it has been washed!) and yoga pants. i’m working around the house and wanna be comfy! oh who am i kidding, i would be wearing this if i wasnt working! haha

  4. I am already a follower, but don’t participate in the other things, socially, so no worries if this places me out of the running. Just visiting to say hi and look at yet one more amazing creation of yours!

    I am wearing a slip, and knee socks, hair up, glasses…. half dressed from coming home from work and just trying to be comfortable. 🙂

  5. I already follow you on google reader. I will send out a tweet as soon as I finish this….@rockcreekcreate

    And right now I’m wearing, my daughter’s socks, cuz I didn’t wash socks this weekend, my grubby shorts, by dress shirt from work, the assorted bra and undie, and my wedding ring…Normally the bra would have been off by this time, but my step-d and grandbabies were over so I thought I’d better keep some decency….LOL

  6. ok I’ll tell you what I’m wearing but if I start getting weird phone calls with heavy breathing I’m blaming you! 😀
    I have on majorly worn in comfy denim capris and a v neck t with a ruffly flower embelishment thingy on the shoulder area and my hair pulled back up in a messy bun-ish thing with a scrunchy…oh yes, you read that correctly, do not adjust your screen I indeed said SCRUNCHY!

  7. I just got back from my run so I’m wearing my sweaty running clothes and I’m chilly so I have my painting apron over my legs!

    Can I sew leather with my regular sewing machine?

  8. Wearing pretty scruffy clothes, workout shorts and old paint splattered t-shirt! I have a couple of hours of bead glazing to do before I go to the spa for a massage 🙂 (last day of summer break for me)

  9. I’m already a follower. I tweeted this just now. I’m wearing sage green jeans, a rose colored tee, 3/4 length sleeved sweater, a bracelet I made this morning and my feet are bare!

  10. Oops. Forgot to say what I am wearing. A plum v neck tshirt with jean capris, bronze bejewelled flip flops that I scored on a serious sale, and my new ‘simple truth’ in a lacy filigree setting with my initial “E” on it. I am getting ready to start selling these. So far they have garnered quite the attention!
    Enjoy the day!

  11. So lovely! But, not as lovely as what I’m wearing right now…super-fancy white boyshort undies with my favorite soft Metallica t-shirt. Oh, and I still have on a fabulous pair of earrings that I wore out to dinner tonight. haaaaaaaaaaa
    Thanks for making me laugh tonight!!!
