|Bracelet design and tutorial Copyright 2013 Katie Sanchez|
What you'll need:
1/2 yard stretch lace
1/4 yard lining or other synthetic fabric
1 decorative button
Hot glue gun and hot glue gun sticks
Measure around wrist and add 1" for seam allowance. Cut this measurement from the stretch lace. Join ends of lace and make a 1/2" seam; this can be done with glue or on the sewing machine using a stretch stitch. Make 3 flowers, 1 large and 2 small, from the lining fabric using your favorite burnt end method. There are countless tutorials out there that show how to make dozens of different kinds of fabric flowers. Pick your favorite and then play with your creativity and imagination to make your flowers unique: use different colors of fabric for one flower or include different kinds of material like tulle or netting to make it a mixed media flower. We have picked a handful of our favorites and posted them on our Pinterest page on our "Fun Projects" Board. Scour the internet and find the method that will give you the look you are after.
Once you've made your fabric flowers, cut three small circles from the felt to use as a backing for the flowers. Hot glue a flower to a felt circle, trapping the lace in between.
Center the large flower in the middle with a small flower on each side. Glue your large flower over the seam in the lace to give your bracelet a seamless appearance.
To finish, embellish the bracelet with a button, jewels, gems or other decoration by hot gluing it/them in the center of the large flower.
There you have it, a corsage to match your beautiful dress that will last a lifetime!
