Needlepoint Finishing – Bracelet

Needlepoint Finishing - Basic BraceletAny rectangular strip of needlepoint can be finished as a bracelet. It’s a terrific way to use up small scraps of needlepoint canvas and yarn, and a great way to add a new piece to your wardrobe!

This Knowledge Nugget features needlepoint finishing information for making a basic bracelet.  This particular tutorial features a simple band with an elastic spacer, making a flexible band that can easily be slipped on and off the wrist without any buttons, hooks or other closures.

The supplies are basic and most of them are shown below – all you need are needle and thread to match your project, fusible (iron-on) craft stabilizer such as Pellon® Craft-Fuse®, wool felt to coordinate with the project, cutting tools and a hot iron.

There are many ways to finish a bracelet or any other type of needlework project, and every designer has their favorite method. This is just one of many different ways of transforming a strip of needlework into wearable art.

I’ve used the design I created for the Spring Counted Needlepoint freebie as the bracelet. You can get the free pattern here, and visit the Needlepoint Bracelet Tutorial here.
