tonight is a night for sharing!  hehe... I've been looking at everyone else's wonderful things and thought i would finally get around to posting some of my own projects....anyway, i'm pretty proud of these!  the first is simple and a little rough but i likes it.  the base of the bracelet is made from three strips of calico cotton, cut on the bias, and stitched together with contrasting thread.  then i added buttons and lace.



the blue one was a little more complicated...lots of different fabric, sequins and buttons....and honestly i didn't like it as much!  but i wanted to share anyway.

Both designs are really neat. The one with calico is really rustic as you say, but elegant at the same time. I think it's my favorite of the two. However, the second one is also nice due to all the different elements you incorporated in over all design. It deserves a special night on the town Smiley

Ah! I love them both! Very well done. I like the rustic charm in the first one, but I also like the glam in the second.  Cheesy

they're both great, but I love the first one, I've stopped wearing jewellery so much but stuff like this makes me want to get back into it, and layers are so nice on wrist cuffs. I like the scruffy, "vintage" feel to it, and the quality of the thread you've used for sewing on the buttons. it's definitely worth experimenting with the same style as the blue one, but maybe you could include more shredded fabrics and lace in chaotic layers, to give it a bit more depth? I'll be keeping an eye on your textile adventures, anyway!
speak to you soon Smiley

both use button closures; the cream colored one has a single large button and a button hole, around which is some rather crude zig-zag stitching.  the blue one has three buttons, and i put loops on the other side.  i like the loops but sometimes they can be a pain, especially when there's more than one!  (i'm just impatient...)
