What Can I Make from a Dollar Tree Handbag part 3

Alrighty you ready for the last tutorial using the Dollar Tree Handbag? Have you guessed what it would be?



Well to start out you need one of the long pieces of  vinyl pleather stuff from the handbag, some scissors, a large safety pin (not pictured) and most importantly a Pepsi. Ha ha no but you might need it or something like it.




Cut three strips of the fabric the long way...




Stack them on top of each other and pin with the safety pins to your pants...




Braid the three pieces together...




Now if you want you can make your bracelet like this using something just larger than your wrists to tie the braid on...




Here is what this version will look like or you can do it this way...




Sew the braid into a ring just larger than your wrists going back and forth several times to make sure it's secure...




You could leave it like that I guess but it looks better.....




After you trim the ends off...




And sew a flower over the trimmed edges. I used the flower tutorial I found at Craftaholics Anonymous Here only I didn't fold the fabric since it won't fray I just sewed the strip how she did...




I added a glass bead to the middle...




Pretty cute ha? Well what do you think of all the crafts I did from one Dollar Tree Handbag? I love them., I can't believe I got so many things from one bag that cost a dollar and I still have more supplies leftover. I would love to see if you make any of these tutorials.
