Bracelet from the skin of an old bag
If you have a disused leather bag that you are going to throw away, or some other unnecessary thing made of leather or leatherette, you can not throw it away, but you can make a bracelet from this thing, for example, in a needlework. You can apply a fairly well-preserved pieces of leather, as well as the handle of the bag. To do this, carefully cut out all the suitable parts of the bag, and make a cord from the handle, cutting off a thin line of leather from it. 1. In addition to pieces of leather and lace, to create a bracelet you will need: contour acrylic paints on fabric; scissors (better manicure with sharp tips); ruler, pencil; a sheet of paper or cardboard; needle, thread (in tone of skin color).2. We start with cutting out the workpiece for the bracelet. From the skin, cut a rectangle measuring 17 cm in length and 8 cm in width. These values are, of course, conditional, you can make a bracelet of any size.3.Stepping back from the edge of 1 cm, use scissors to cut holes in two sides for attaching laces.4. We cut 2 pieces of length about 15 cm from the prepared lace. After inserting the lace into the hole and bending it 1-2 cm, carefully sew it.5. Now let's start painting the bracelet. Draw a sketch to create a pattern using, for example, coins. We outline them, having in the form of a flower. We add some petals. It is possible to draw the whole picture by hand, as long as the lines are smooth, not curved.6. Cut the sketch on the outer contour and impose on the leather blank exactly in the center.7. We circle our flower with a series of pink dots, gently pressing a paper flower. We are waiting for 10-15 minutes to dry the paint, then remove it.8.Cut the inner circle - the middle of the flower, superimpose it in the center and circle it in the same way.9. We dot the interior first. We plot a series of yellow and a series of purple dots. 10. Alternating pink, yellow and purple colors, fill the rows of dots with the middle of the flower. 11. Pink color draws round flower petals. 12. In the same sequence of rows, we fill the round petals.
