Stitched Jeans Bracelet

Yup, there it is - another upcycled jeans bracelet.  (remember my multi-wrap beaded jeans bracelet?)  Low key and simple, and not particularly fashion-like photography since I had to take the picture myself. 

This bracelet is mine.

I made it for me and my rather simple ascetic.  Don't be fooled.  I can dress myself up pretty well, but I like jeans and a t-shirt the best, or better yet, yoga pants and a t-shirt.

I started like I did this Upcycled Jeans Bracelet, but I included the leg seem.  Cutting on the bias, I cut a 1 inch piece that would be long enough to wrap once around my wrist.

I placed the to pieces together with the right side out, cut to fit my wrist at the length that I desired (loose), and sewed a 2/8 of an inch seam around the entire piece.

Now, the choice is to bead or not to bead.  I chose not to bead this creation.  I chose some multicolored, shiny, silky thread and tested the different stitches available on my sewing machine.

I don't know about you, but that is enough embellishment for me.  Then, I frayed the edges by washing and drying it with my regular laundry.

The jeans seam adds to the subtle embellishment.

Finally, I add a bright green kam snap as my closure.

Und fertig. (And finished.)

This guy even survived my youngest puking on it and me.  :)  Now, that is good jewelry.
