How to make fabric bracelets 

It's super duper easy. Just a few steps and you're done! I bet you can make a whole bunch in under ten minutes. 

But let's go.

Step 1: Fabric scraps

Grab your favourite fabric scraps (make sure they are at least 12" long) and give them a quick press. Now cut them into strips measuring about 1/2" in width (mine are roughly 12" long and 1/2" wide).

Step 2: Add beads

Now, load your letter beads onto your easy reader tool. Thread your strip of fabric through the opening and pull your beads down onto your fabric. It can be a wiggly at first but you'll quickly get really used to it.

Bonus Tip: Personalise it

You can easily load your tool with all kind of beads to make it extra special. Just make sure your beads (or maybe better the holes) are big enough to thread them onto your tool. 

The possibilities are endless!

Step 3: Adjustable knot 

Once you're done, finish your bracelet with an adjustable knot. It comes in super handy for slipping in and out of the bracelet. And of course - if this is a present for a fellow swifties (...or a baby shower, birthday party, teacher gift), you want the size to be flexible. 

Now, take one end of your bracelet and create a simple knot. Keep the loop of the knot open and thread the second side of your bracelet right through that loop. Tighten the knot and tadaaa! That's you done.

Step 4: Show Off Your Creation

It's time to show it off to the world! Wear it with pride and let everyone admire your DIY skills (psst...they don't have to know how easy it is). And again - they make fantastic gifts for friends and loved ones.
