MAKE: Knotted Bracelet by Bebe Bradley of www.meninafeliz.com


This is a super easy little bracelet to make and uses minimal materials. Ideal for using up those left over bits and bobs in the craft drawer. it also makes a great short project for rainy afternoons and birthday parties keeping the kids happy!


Materials: • A length of thin cord or hemp, approximately 3m long • A button with holes large enough to string two cords through • Pins and a board (or a cushion, for example) will also make it easier to knot your bracelet.


For this tutorial, I used hemp, a vintage mother-of-pearl-button and some spare beads for decoration.


Instructions: 1. Measure your wrist and add 15cm.

Take the measurement, double it and cut a piece of cord to this length – we’ll call this the “wrist cord”. Now cut another length of cord 1.8m - 2m long, though this length will be largely dependent on the size of your wrist – we’ll call this the “long cord”’. For example, to fit my 6.5cm wrist, I used a 1.8m long cord. Thread the two cords side by side through your button so that the button is strung in the middle of the two cords


2. Using your pin and board to anchor the button, you are ready to


make your first knot. Your two short cords - your wrist cord - should be in the centre with two long cords on either side. Pull the two short cords so that they run in a taut, parallel line from the button towards you. 3. Place the right hand cord in an ‘L’ shape over the two short cords and under the left hand cord. Bring the left hand cord under the two short cords and up through the loop formed by the short and right hand
