Thrifty Chic - DIY Fabric Bangles

Coral, Purple & Cream fabric covered bangles

Ladies here's some "money for jam" or "bang for your buck." DIY fabric covered bangles. If your a fabric fiend like me then chances are you have loads of it around the house. So all you will need for this project is your old bangles, hot glue gun, scissors and selected fabric.

Cut fabric into strips of 35ml or bigger. (Depending on the size/width of your bangles you are covering). Double the fabric strip lengthwise, then iron. Tightly start winding the fabric in a diagonal direction around the bangle being sure to cover the raw edge of the material with each loop you do. Finish off with a dab of hot glue to secure fabric in its place and cut off excess fabric. Voila! A new set of up-cycled bangles!
