    These turned out so super cute. Thanks for sharing how to make them with us all! BTW – fabulous job helping Linda at Craftaholics! You guys did a great job on the look.

  2. Heather says:

    LOVE this! It seems kind of confusing, but I think if I sit down with my material in front of the computer and do it, I'll get it!

  3. Settee says:

    very cute. :-)

  4. Jennifer says:

    Okay, I love this. Like A LOT, but it's definitely a no go for me until I learn how to sew. So what I was thinking, is maybe you have a giveaway for one and let me win. :P Hehe. Kidding…kind of. Thanks for sharing your tutorial. I think it's awesome. :)

  5. Danielle says:

    a group of girls and i are getting together to make one of these tomorrow. i can't wait to see how they turn out! thank you!

  6. Thea says:

    This is pretty good! Thanks for the detailed tutorial

  7. While They Snooze says:

    LOVE! We have craft lunches at work where we suggest a craft we can all get done on our lunch breaks… totally suggesting this one. We might need to wing it with hot glue since brining a sewing machine to work would be a little weird! haha Can't wait to make this.

  8. Suburbsmama says:

    I love it! the pretty buttons make it look very unique, i am going to have to try this.

  9. staci says:

    These are adorable! Can't wait to make one! :)

  10. Liz says:

    I love this! I'm in the process of making my second one right now.

  11. Jeannie says:

    This is gorgeous and I can't wait to make one…or three. I'm going to link back to you on 6/8

  12. Charisa says:

    Beautiful and look really easy! This is just the type of project I was looking for, thanks!

  13. Jay says:

    I love the look of this bracelet! I've tried it a couple times.. doesn't look quite as "put together" as yours, but I still adore the look of it! :)

  14. Megan says:

    Hello! I am putting together a DIY bracelet round up to post on my blog. I'd love to include this one. Could I have permission to snag 1 photo and your link? please let me know! thanks! :)

  15. Heidi says:


    of course. Thanks for the feature!


  16. Tori says:

    Very bohemian chic!

  17. makeandmingle says:

    All over this. Especially love the color – put it in my blog

  18. MrsWardy88 says:

    I will be doing my own version. I hope you stop by and check it out sometime. :)


  19. Brittani says:

    So neat! I was looking for cute, thick bracelets for people I know who have tattoos on their wrists. It's perfect!

  20. BinksandBubble says:

    this is being put towards the top of my "to-do" list – such a simple way to add a little elegance to everyday!

    Ok I am a sewer and have been for years. However when looking at the two you made, they look different to me. If so how did you do the yellow one. I am not one to figure it out by looking a picture. Thanks for any help.

  22. Anonymous says:

    I love this! Just made one for a gift, however I put a little twist on it. Instead of weaving fabric strips through the cuff, I used pearl strands. They look fantastic paired with a black background.

  23. Annie says:

    Is the yellow one made the same way? If not is there a tutorial for it too?

  24. Heidi says:


    Yes, the yellow one is made the same way. The only difference is the material used. The pink is cotton, the yellow is Jersey.



  25. Lindsay says:

    Where did you get the cute buttons? I LOVE them!

  26. Heidi says:


    I got them from Michaels arts and crafts in the jewelry section.


  27. Kimmy says:

    You know, when I first saw this a few months ago, I immediately passed over it without reading bc I thought it was beyond my skill level–but you have a really great tutorial!! I'm not one of those girls who made braided friendship bracelets when I was a kid, and I'm not a sewer (seamstress?) at all–but this is very "do-able." Thank you so much, this is at the top of my "to try" list!

  28. LEEKAHSENG. says:

    i don't get one part, how do you sew the button?

  29. Anonymous says:

    this is so gay, like the highest level of homosexuality that any craft could reach. the individual that churned out this ridiculous idea should be ashamed of theirself, and also question their intelligence along with their sexuality. for anyone who cundones this idea, you are on the same level if not lower of intelligence. you can rest assure that this ignorant craft will be on my blog, not to support it but the exact oppisite. i will drag this through the mud and back, and i am 100% sure that my blog readers will agree with me completly and have the same passionate hatred and dislike for this obserd craft.

  30. Anonymous says:

    I am obviously kidding. I think this idea is brilliant! I love the intricate detail that is so simple! Thank you for sharing this idea with all of us! I do intend to share this on my blog, and my followers will obsess over it as I have.

  31. leroi says:

    I think I am more impressed with your spot-on tutorial than I am with the bracelet. I am so gonna do this!

  32. Heidi says:


    I sewed the button on with a needle and thread.

    thanks! :)


  33. Ruby says:

    I love these! Thanks for sharing!

  34. Heidi says:

    Thanks everyone!!!

  35. Rachel says:

    Soooooo cute and clever!

  36. Kristina says:

    Hi-these are so cool and unique! I am making a few. I have a question: I want to do a post about the ones I’m making-but I’m doing it the no sew way, is it ok to link back to this post to give you credit for the original idea? Thanks for the great idea!

  37. So cute! I’m definitely going to try this — pinning your tutorial now! :) Thanks for sharing!

  38. Christen says:

    I found you and your tutorial via Pinterest. Thank you for this awesome tutorial. I made my bracelet today!

    Happy holidays!

  39. gab says:

    I really liked it, i did it in under one hour and it looks great! is gonna be a present for my sister! THANK YOU!

    • Heidi says:

      Great! I am glad you liked it! It’s still by far one of my favorite bracelets! Here’s hopin’ your sister likes it too :)

  40. Shannon says:

    Thank you for sharing this!! I’ve made a couple and they are super cute!! Featured this tutorial on my blog!!

  41. Emiyl says:

    This looks super cute! and super easy! I am very excited to try. Just curious if a certain type of material works best for this??


    • Heidi says:

      Hi Emiyl,
      If you want a more structured look then I would use 100% cotton. The pink one is 100% cotton and the yellow one is Jersey. Both materials create very different looks.
      Hope this helps,

  42. geri green says:

    LOVE this. made one out of stretchable denim, put a heart button on it and gave it to my preteen daughter. EVERY girl in family has worn it at one time or the other and my daughter who was visiting from PA just took it home with her! looks like ill need to make another :) thanks for the tutorial!

    • Heidi says:

      Great! I’m glad you (and all your little ladies) like it! It was really fun & easy to make! :)
      Thanks for the comment!

  43. Jennifer says:

    I saw this on Pinterest. SO cute! I wish I wasn’t so intimidated by a needle and thread!

  44. Nancy says:

    Love bracelet is beautiful. I’m going to make them with my future daughter in law on a future visit. I have some great vintage buttons and material. Can’t wait. Thank you.

  45. I love this bracelet but I especially love the detailed instructions and pics! TFS

  46. Ginger says:

    I have added a link and photo of your rope bracelet tutorial on my blog. Please let me know if you would like me to remove it. Thanks for the tut. Love this bracelet!

  47. I tried this last week, it was fun to make. However, it’s not good as what you did. This is awesome.

  48. This is sooooo cool, Heidi! Such a great way to use up some pretty little fabric scraps. I especially love the warm honey yellow color of the button with the blush colored fabric – very nice!

    I would love to feature this project on my new jewelry tutorial site…I have just sent an email with details.

    Look forward to seeing more of your projects!

    Just made this with black jersey from an old favorite tee that I couldn’t bear to throw out. It looks amazing and the best part is I still get to “wear” this old favorite tee!

  50. RickyBobby says:

    These are so cute! Easy to make too once you get the hang of it. For those who don’t sew, might I suggest using fabric glue instead of hot glue. It seems to hold better, and it’s less stringy. You’ll probably still need to use hot glue for the button though.
