Sea Penny Bracelet Tutorial
Oh yes.... I've made something else with my little crochet sea pennies... dainty bracelets!
After trying to crochet them together in some manner and utterly failing, I settled on hot gluing them to some felt. Ha! So simple! I wish I would have thought of that first! I'll save you the pain...just follow my little tutorial here:
crochet sea pennies- make enough to cover all around your wrist. (I made mine out of a fine shiny yarn, so they look more delicate.)You can find my tutorial for them here.
sew on snaps
hot glue gun
Step 1: Measure the circumference of your wrist. Add 1/2 to 3/4 inches to that length, depending on how tight you want your bracelet to be. Cut a piece of felt in these dimensions: 1/2 wide x Length your wrist circumference + 1/2 to 3/4 inch. My wrist is about 6 inches around so I cut my felt 1/2 inch wide and 6 3/4 inch long. The width can vary here depending on how thick you want your bracelet to be and how large your crochet sea pennies are.
Step 2: Hot glue or sew snaps onto each end, making sure to get them on the right sides so they will close nicely around your wrist.
Step 3: Arrange the sea pennies in desired order/pattern and hot glue them to the felt strip. Make sure to overlap the sea pennies a bit, unless you want gaps showing between them while wearing the bracelet.
Strap your bracelet on and wear it proudly cuz, hey, it's not every day you wear crochet bracelet!
