How to make Leather Bracelets
Leather bracelets are in and we’ll show you how to whip them up in no time! First off, gather all your materials. That includes leather strips or cords, some round beads, thread, clasps, needle, scissors, your flat surface with fasteners to keep everything in its place. Okay, bet we’re all set then.
First off, you would have to choose the length of the bracelet, and then cut the leather off. Just make sure you have extra length for some adjustments and when making knots. Knot your leather and thread together and leave a loop on the end. Hold the thread by the knot and just let the needle fall off so it is centered on the thread. Fold your leather into two parts leaving a loop for your button to fit its way through. Now, holding the end of the knot of your thread with the leather, tie an overhead knot so that they are now connected. Just make sure your button or clasp will fit through its loop before tightening the knot. Fasten it now to your work area leaving the thread loose. Strating off with the thread in the middle of the leather’s two strands, you have to wrap the thread over its right strand working your way to the outside then under right, over the left going outside, under the left and then over the right again. Once you get the basic rhythm of the bracelet, you’ll surely get hold on to it.

Do the pattern five to six times while pulling the thread tighter around the leather bracelet to form its binding. A little note, a few stitches without any beads will secure the thread on the leather. Now, you are all set to add your beads! Add a bead after your thread has passed under the left side of your leather. Hold it between the two strands of leather and stitch the thread over the right, back under the right, through the bead hole and over its left. Bring the thread under the left and another bead to it in the middle. Repeat these steps many times, keeping the beads pulled snugly against the leather. Bear in mind that your stitches all should face the same direction. To close the bracelet, form several stitches without any beads attached to it. Now you are all set to attach your clasp or button to it. You may also add some charms on to the leather cord after you are through. You are now ready to conquer the world with your leather bracelet!
