For sure, you also have some old bangle lying around, and some crochet yarn. These are great materials to create a new fashionable bangle for your teenage daughter.
- Bangle - Take into account the size of the final product will be smaller. The mother’s bangle will fit a daughter.
- Thread - You can use linen, brocade or leather cord. Thicker a thread, lager a bangle, as basis, you need
- A piece of leather to cover inside of the bangle
- Needle and thread - I like to use thin fishing line. It is strong and transparent.
Step 1 Glue the end of the tread to the inside of the bangle.
Step 2 Wrap the thread vertically tight around a bangle. Put a few times glue on the bangle to fix the thread on the place.
Step 3 Continue to wrap a thread around the bangle, but this time under the certain angle and distance between wraps. Go all around the bangle. You can also use a different color thread to create contrast. In few places fix the thread with glue, better from the inside of the bangle.
Step 4 Now wrap the thread to the other direction to create crosses. The crossing threads can be also decorated with seed beads.
Step 5 Cut a peace if leather in the size of the bangle and glue it inside. To fix it more firmly, I also sewed it on.
