Liberty of London Button Bracelet

I shared how I found some Liberty of London fabrics in my stash and how I used them to make fabric covered buttons several posts ago...

Well, I keep finding good uses for these fabrics. I will share what I’ve done and the tutorial for it next week. Meanwhile, I am sharing some pictures of bracelets today.

I wanted some eclectic, fun, and slightly chunkier bracelets for myself. I decided to mix oversized buttons and beads with the fabric covered buttons that I made with my beloved Liberty of London fabrics.

All I did was to use elastic for jewelry making, threaded the buttons and beads. Tie the ends and apply some super glue... that is it! Isn't it so easy? I bet this will be a fun gift exchange idea for Christmas too!
Here are the lancelets...


I like them all; it is so much fun to think about what you can wear with them. I feel like a plain t-shirt could even look interesting with these bracelets.

Red & Orange,


Mauve & Blue,


Green & Brown,



Which one do you like best?


My favorite? I must say the red one.


I feel like I put the covered buttons to good use, and the best part is, if I ever change my mind, I can cut the elastic anytime I want and use them for something else, isn't that awesome? :)

I always go after pink, but the orange, green and brown ones are so pretty!
What a great idea. Now to go look through all my buttons. And maybe my moms and grandmas!
