How To: Fabric Wrapped Jewellery

A very easy way to make bracelets and necklaces while using up scraps from your fabric stash.

Simply create a tube of fabric, either hand or machine sewn.
It needs to be wide enough to fit your beads of choice within it, and long enough to tie around your neck or wrist.

Tie a knot close to one end of the fabric tube, leaving enough extra material to tie the ends together later.
Then alternate placing a bead within the tube, and threading one onto the the fabric.

When you're done, make another knot to secure the beads, again leaving enough excess fabric to tie the ends together.

Very simple.


  1. Wow, those bracelets are really clever!

  2. Heh heh - I'm glad you like them... I shall subtley note that on my swap ideas page.
