A cozy accessory on your wrist…a totally unique and fabulous idea.
Over the holidays I picked up several thrifted fair isle sweaters that I had planned to use to make some new stockings for our family. One of them in particular was a sweet little red and purple one that I loved but it was a super tiny baby sweater and was badly moth eaten so not really something that could be worn again and in the end a little too small for a full stocking.
I wanted to use it somehow though because I just loved the print and so I cut it up and set it aside knowing that it would be perfect refashioned as a chunky bangle for the winter months. As luck would have it on Christmas Eve my baby sister, Annie, gifted me a big chunky hand knit bangle (for the record she hand knitted the big purple one because she has real yarn skills – she always makes such sweet hand knit gifts for us I love it!) and the color matched perfectly to the one sitting on my crafting table at home! It was just enough incentive to finish up the one I had started and I love how it turned out. I thought I would share a little step by step with you today in case you are in the mood to make a stack for the chilly winter months too!
These bracelets look awesome with some thrift store bobbles and/or yarn pom poms added to them. Another great idea is embroidering a design on them! You can go crazy thinking of all the fabulous ways to decorate these bracelets! I just love them and so do my friends who I’ve gifted them to!
