For those of you who don't know me personally, you might not know how obsessive I can be. I'm not someone who's obsessed with details or things being perfect. More like I make something that's fun and easy and I just keep making it.
So, when I first saw these bracelets by Vanessa at V and Co, they looked too hard, so I thought, those are cute, but I don't have time to figure it out. Then, she posted a video and made it look so much easier.
So I made one, then another, then another.....all in about 15 minutes.
Do I need 6 bracelets....no. Will I wear 6 bracelets......no. Can I stop making these....no!
But I will share with you what I learned in case you decide to make one (or 6) yourself. The first ones I made (hot pink and light yellow above) I made with a cotton spandex blend. I didn't like the way they came out because they're almost too perfect looking. The ones below I made with leftover scraps from repurposed shirts, and I liked the result much better.
I also liked the 2 finger result the best. The four finger is really chunky and I've got tiny wrists, it was just too much. The hot pink on the far left is a 4 finger, the rest are 2 finger with varying strip thicknesses.
Here's the evidence, I did actually wear one today. And will probably wear it again.
And I did make one for my daughter and I think she will wear hers too.
So go check out the video, it's pretty cute with Vanessa's daughter singing in the background. But be forewarned, it's addictive!
