Earlier this month I shared a chain version of my DIY convertible bracelet choker. This week, I wanted to share the glass bead version that I love to wear as a bracelet. But it can be worn as a choker necklace or a wrap bracelet, it’s up to you!
Ever since I made my DIY version of the Bina Brianca convertible travel wrap I’ve been a little obsessed with making other convertible pieces like the DIY convertible blanket wrap. This time I made a few different versions of a DIY convertible bracelet choker; wear it as a choker necklace or a wrap bracelet! Be on the lookout for a second version I’ll be sharing later this month. Sign up for email updates so you don’t miss it!
Have you ever walked around a fabric store and grabbed all the fabric samples from the plastic sleeves just because? I definitely have! I fall in love with fabrics easily, but I usually have no real idea of what I would do with them if I buy the fabrics, so the alternative for me is to collect the fabric samples instead. I hold on to them in case I think of a project with that particular fabric type or patter, but often I do nothing with them and they sit gathering dust. I know, I know, it’s a big waste! And I’m an advocator of reducing, reusing and recycling, which makes me feel even guiltier about this weird collection of mine. So I’ve challenged myself to start using them for DIY projects. I’ve challenged myself awhile back to only use materials I have on hand at home before, making a leather bucket bag with scraps/samples last year. This week, I used a fabric sample to make over an old bracelet I randomly found when I moved out of the university dorms years ago.
Since I’ve come back from my trip abroad, I’ve focused on making simple DIY’s that are fast and easy to make. I’m trying to use the materials I have on hand, instead of going out to buy new things every time. I came across Mollie Make’s embroidery floss necklace tutorial and was inspired to make a bracelet version.
