Making a Recycled Jean Cuff Bracelet with Embroidery and KAM Snaps
Today I am making another Cuff Bracelet. Once my little princess saw what her big sister had made, she :) requested her own in "Pink", of course. As an added detail, I also used the embroidery settings on my sewing machine to stitch butterflies on the Cuff. My little princess picked out her KAM snap colors: B47 Neon Pink and G99 Lilac and she is now happily sporting her own stylish Cuff Bracelet.
Supplies for a Recycled Jean Cuff Bracelet with Embroidery detail:
- 1 Pair of Holey Jeans
- 2 KAM Snap Sets
- KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
- Standard Sewing Machine with Embroidery option
- Using an old, holey pair of Jeans cut two 2″ by size of wrist plus 1 1/2″ strips of material, for my model’s wrist I did about 6″.
- Pin the material, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.
- Stitch around the strip of fabric about a 3/8″ in all the way round making sure to back stitch at the start and end.
- Pull on the edges to fray the jean material up to the stitch you made. It will also fray over time but I was going for a this look.
- As an added embellishment, I ran a row of butterflies up and down the Cuff Bracelet.
- One side I installed 2 Caps and 2 Sockets, I installed each 1/8″ off the corner seam on both ends. Repeat on other side, making sure to put the 2 Caps and 2 Studs on the opposite sides from the other end so that when you overlap the Cuff to snap it that the sockets and studs meet. I found it easiest to wrap the Cuff around my model’s wrist to make sure I positioned the second set of snaps correctly the first time.
- Tada! It turned out wonderful and made my little princess very happy. Happy Snapping!!!
