This is my first punchneedle cuff bracelet. I made this prototype to fit my very small wrist - more will follow in sizes that most people can actually wear.
I've never used punchneedle in this way - but by the time I finished I could actually say "it worked"! That isn't always the case, and when it does it rates an extra square of chocolate as a reward *smile*.
I began the design by punching to the dimensions necessary for the bracelet. After punching I added decorative fiber. Once the punching was finished I added a shank button and created a thin cord to use as a loop closure. I attached that to the back and then secured felt to the back of the bracelet. Last step - stitch around the edges of the felt and punchneedle.
I'm hoping for a little more decorative fiber and brighter colors with some of the upcoming bracelets. Also I'd like to add a few beads or other adornments. Guess its back to searching through my 'stash of stuff' (*smile*).
