Hello all! hope you had a great weekend? So here's the deal, it's 5 am-ish and I just had to do this quick post before rushing off to begin my day. If you are a regular visitor to this blog, you would know that I posted a previous DIY on ankara fabric bangles albeit a big bangle and so promised a diy on smaller bangles so here it is.( I hope my ankara DIYs aren't becoming 'too much' it's just what readers require the most when they write in lol!)
you can read all about my previous bangle post on here
more on the other side....
Bangle (plastic or wooden)
Ribbon for finishing
Cut your fabric on the bias (you can see how to from my previous bangle post), fold and iron. When you are done you should have about and inch of fabric in width.
wrap up the bangle with a tape measure to determine the length of fabric you'll need to wrap up your bangle. This can be done when cutting the fabric strip to fold so you don't waste fabric, or cut your fabric too short and begin gluing scraps.
With the glue still wet, wrap u the bangle with your long strip of folded fabric.
and you should have this:
Now for 'non-wrapped' fabric bangles(note this is also a smaller bangle, this procedure always comes out neater than the wrapped version cos all you see is smooth fabric.)
follow the same procedure of gluing a bias strip.
cut yet another bias strip and cover the already wrapped bangle with it. (note that it is optional to 'double wrap' you can skip the first step or should I say first wrap)
Trim off the excess...
secure the insides with glue
finish off by gluing a ribbon onto the insides.
and this is what you'll have:
that's all folks!
