Material List

  • 1/8" Sof Suede Lace card in Lt. Blue, Aqua and Kiwi
  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors
 

Project Instructions

Measure your wrist. This will determine how long you will want to make your bracelet

Fold a 30" length of Aqua Sof Suede in half, forming a loop.

Lay a 15" length of Lt. Blue Sof Suede between the two strands of Aqua.

Tie an overhand knot securing the strands together, leaving a 3/4 inch loop of the aqua strands. The end of the lt. blue strand will be inside the aqua loop.

Secure the loop on a nail, or on a clipboard to hold it securely as you braid.

Lay the three strands out flat in front of you with the brushed side of the suede lace up.

Begin braiding by placing the aqua strand on the right, over the center, then the left side aqua strand over the middle strand.

Continue braiding the right strand over middle and then left strand over the middle. Keep all of the strands taut as you braid.

Continue to braid to the desired length.

At the desired length, tie an overhand knot holding all three strands together.

Wrap the bracelet around your wrist and fasten by inserting the knot and loose Sof Suede strands through the loop. Can be adorned with a button or beads for a fastener.

Tips

Be careful, do not twist the suede. Sof Suede Lace has a brushed side that you will want to keep facing up.
