So I originally made this for the I Made A Thing challenge on dreamwidth, in which you show off your fandom in a way that's not art, fic, or podficcing. I picked bandom, and more specifically, a lyric from a Fall Out Boy song. I was going to just keep it there, but on a different thread here I saw someone use the phrase 'that's gay', and so now I'm being passive aggressive by uploading this. I plan to wear it to my next few big family events, as I've worn my knitted gay pride bracelets to them for years now, and they're getting boring.

This is the finished product:


The top half is what it looked like when I was finished stamping it. The bottom half is my first attempt at dyeing it. I made it too dark. Thankfully it's a waterbased dye, so I just got the leather wet and dabbed at it with a paper towel, and some of the colour leeched off.


Obligatory action shot:

I had caught that phrase as I was reading the posts and was bothered, thank you for posting your bracelets.
