30 Days of Snaps!!! Day #20: How to make a Cuff Bracelet with Recycled Jeans and KAM Snaps

Day #20

Making a Recycled Jean Cuff Bracelet with KAM Snaps

Continuing with the theme of things you can do with holey Jeans, I set about to make a Cuff Bracelet with a leg of the jeans and some KAM Snaps.  I let my crafty helper pick the snaps of her choice and we did a little mix matching so that she could wear it a couple different ways.  It turned out great and she was pleased to be the owner of it after the Tutorial was complete :).

Supplies for a Recycled Jean Cuff Bracelet:

Instructions:

1.  Using an old, holey pair of Jeans cut two 2″ by size of wrist plus 1 1/2″ strips of material, for my model’s wrist I did about 7″.

2.  Pin the material, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.

3.  Stitch around the strip of fabric about a 3/8″ in all the way round making sure to back stitch at the start and end.

4.  Pull on the edges to fray the jean material up to the stitch you made.  I used the model, a crafty child :), and a cutting board and a fork.  It will also fray over time but I was going for a this look.

5.  One side I installed 2 Caps and 2 Sockets, I installed each 1/8″ off the corner seam on both ends.

6.  Repeat on other side, making sure to put the 2 Caps and 2 Studs on the opposite sides from the other end so that when you overlap the Cuff to snap it that the sockets and studs meet.  I found it easiest to wrap the Cuff around my model’s wrist to make sure I positioned the second set of snaps correctly the first time.
