Bowtie Bracelet #1 (half tutorial)

Let me introduce you to a new project that's been floating around in my head lately! The bowtie bracelet! Made out of fabric! I love making fabric bows! I put them on pins, brooches and now I thought why not make a bracelet out of them. Okay this is the first one though so it needs some tweaking. But I like seeing the start of projects!

It all started with an idea... and where do Ideas go? Right in a journal I love keeping random journals with everything and anything in them!

Here you find some pattern sketches of things I though I would need, turns out I was right!

  • Two pieces of rounded fabric for the bow body
  • One small piece for the bow devider
  • Two broad pieces of fabric for the bracelet body
  • One finer strip of fabric for the middle
  • Two pieces of male and female velcro OR snap on button

  • Sewing machine
  • Needle
  • Thread (white for this fabric)
  • Iron
  • Some loose feltwool or cottonballs ( to stuff the bow with)
And here is the end result, now I know this isn't a tutorial but I just wanted to see if anyone wanted a detailed tutorial before I type one out ^^ so let me know if there is any interest in this one.


  1. hey sweets, I'd love to see this as a full tutorial. Possibly it could work on a larger scale as a headband too? I look forward to the full tutorial!

  2. I will make a full tutorial then ^^ Hmm a bow headband, I'll look into that one!

  3. Ah. Why didn't you told me about your amazing journal. I'm really liking all these tutorials and cute ideas! :D
