DIY Your Own Bling 2 - Sequence and Pink Zebra Stripes

If you didn't like the my other bling bracelet, you can not deny pink flannel zebra stripes AND sequence.  I mean, really, even I can't wait to put this one with short sleeves and show it off.

When I finished with my other bracelet, an image of my pink flannel zebra stripe scraps just popped into my head, and I just had to see how it would look with my sequence ribbon.  I broke out my sequence ribbon and by black trim and started to fool around with my fabric.  I don't know about you, but I like the silver over the pink sequence.

When I cut my fabric, I compared it to my existing sequence bracelet and added a little a quarter inch on each end as a seam allowance.

I cut 2 equal fabric pieces, and then cut the sequence and trim to match the length of the fabric.

Next, I lined it all up, pinned, and sewed on the very edge of the ribbon with thread matching the trim (black).  With the right sides together, I sewed around the edges with approximately a half inch seam allowance, leaving a bit open to turn the bracelet inside out.

I did not zigzag the edges, since I planned on top stitching later.  When I turned it inside out, I pushed the corners out as much as possible and ironed it flat.

Then I topped stitched, keeping with the black thread theme.

Finally, I added one of my favorite closures, black KAM snaps at the corners.

Awesome!  Awesome!  Awesome!

Hope you enjoyed this one as much as the last, I sure did.
