Hello once more and to my muslim brothers and sisters, I say Barka Da Sallah! Has this been a great week or what? Well, it has been for me and I hope it's the same for you as well cos most importantly we should be thankful cos we are alive right? right :-) Now as you may now know, i'm currently crushing on Stella Jean, so in my search (more like stalking), I happened to find these bangles of hers amongst other 'treasures' and decided to DIY them.
Stella Jean Bangle - retailing at 201 USD
there's more on the other side!
Stella Jean Bangle retailing at 158 USD
For this tutorial, you'll need:
a bangle- I used a wooden bangle here.
Studs - here, I used iron - on studs
Gist (Nigerian slang for chat):
1.Cut a strip of fabric on the 'bias' I.e across a square section like you are cutting a strip off a diagonal. I put up two pictures showing this with the tape on the bias, and the second showing the tape on the straight grain of the fabric.
2. Cut your fabric - The fabric should be just long enough to go round the bangle and wide enough to close in neatly on the inside although you'll need to finish off with some ribbon to make it look neat. (remember this fabric is cut on the bias)
3. I used iron-on studs for this project so if you are not, just insert your studs on the fabric by piercing them through the fabric and pressing down with a flat head screw driver.
4.Spread your glue on d bangle. NOTE- don't apply too much glue.
5.Place your fabric on top of the bangle, smoothen evenly, and finish off with some ribbon or trimming on the inside to conceal rough edges..
and there we have our very own studded bangle. cool eh?
