Embroidered bracelets...what a simple, lovely idea!  How do you keep the fabric taut?

Lisalady, I do the embroidering on a piece of fabric large enough to fit in a hoop, with lines drawn in lightly indicating the edges of the design and the seam allowance; then I cut it down to size when I am ready to assemble the bracelet.   Smiley

I started out with a medium-weight flax linen, which actually turned out to be too lightweight so I mounted it to this old heavyweight hemp linen I have lying around. The hemp linen is scarce so I probably shouldn't have used it. I think it would be fine to do the embroidery part on regular Aida needlework cotton and then use a soft cotton or linen for the lining (the part that will lie next to the skin) when it comes time to sew it all together.
