A tutorial

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I did lots of cooking and eating, so I am on a guilt trip for overeating and vowing to get back to my healthier way of cooking. I really do not diet anymore, but I do try to watch my portion sizes and eat lots of vegetables. I did try some new recipes that I found through pinterest and wow! Oh so good!
For this tutorial I am going to let the pictures do the talking. I am still into layering, so making lots of bangles are a must. I am sharing the basic single bangle. I made these on the thin side, they can be chunkier by just wrapping until it is the thickness you want it to be. If you have any questions just ask in the comment section at the end of the post. I am going to be changing the way I get comments, so I do not miss any questions.

Lets get started!



On some of the bracelets I wrapped two pipe cleaners together.




At this point you can add embroidery stitches, beads, buttons or what ever else you can think of.



So the bracelets are comfortable be sure to crimp the wires into the pipe cleaner before wrapping with yarn.

This Bracelet I crocheted a chain of embroidery floss and that is what was used for wrapping.

You can work your ends back through with a needle or just tie off. There is still room for embellishment or just keep it simple. The pipe cleaners make a great base to wrap on.
Use a little glue here and there if need be.
