My chunky button bracelet
Last weekend I was at a craft fair and saw these cool crocheted bracelets an artist had made. They were very simple, just a crocheted chain with a clasp. The first thing I thought was, I could sew buttons onto that!
And so, I did! I just went through my stash of vintage buttons to use for crafts and chose different red, green and white buttons (thinking "Christmas.")
I alternated red and green on the "top" of the bracelet...
and white along each "side" of the bracelet. I simply sewed the buttons onto the crocheted yarn. (You can see the crocheted part in the top middle-to-right of the bracelet in the photo above.)
I'm very happy with the way it turned out! It's chunky, but surprisingly comfortable! I think it really "pops" and I'm going to have a ball wearing it for casual Christmas-time fun!
