The weather here in South California is super hot so it doesn’t feel like the fall season is just around the corner. But I’ve been seeing a lot of fall fashion and accessories surfacing everywhere.
I always thought brown toned Suede and leather really match the fall season. Since I don’t have leather and only have suede cords, I played around with it a bit after I made my macbook sleeve. This is my first attempt at making a Suede bracelet and it turned out ok. But I’ll keep experimenting and will post again once I get a better design.
So for this bracelet I started with 4 pieces of 2 different colored suede cords, which I just wrapped it around my wrist and cut it a little bigger than the wrist.
I took 2 different colored cords and looped it as shown on the left picture and then placed a small object there to hold it in place. Then I took the 2 remaining cords and placed though the hole that the loop created as shown on the right and placed an object on the end to hold it in place.
I took the loose end of the 2 pieces that went through the loop and created a loop. The loose end will then go under and through the previous loop, over the secured end (shown on the left), and then under the loop (sorry I forgot to take a picture). Then, I would take the ends on the lower left hand corner and the upper right hand corner and pull them up and over the loop to secure the loop in a criss cross fashion.
After I pulled it tightly together, I started working on the ends. I cut off two more smaller pieces of cord and used it to wrap around the ends of the bracelet. I hand sewed the suede cords together so that it will stay in place. I cut off three pieces off of the end where it was wrapped and left the longest piece to sew a loop.
On the other end of the bracelet, I wrapped the ends with the small piece of cord and cut off any excess. Now the bracelet is complete and ready to be worn.
I always feel like suede bracelets especially in this brown color is perfect for autumn. It’ll go great as a boho-chic-feel kind of brown or burgundy outfit. Haha that was a mouthful and with trendy booties. Guess it’s time to start shopping for the fall.
Are you ready for the fall season?
