Today is just a small craft, but hang on because this Thursday there will be a big announcement…
I don’t know about you but I always get keycords at like every event I go but I never use them. I have a bunch of keywords just lying around so today I decided to make a bracelet with them.
The only things you need are a keycord, cellotape, scissors and needle and thread.
Step 1: Cutting of one side at the clasp
Take your keycord at the side with the clasp and cut one one of the sides
Step 2: Cutting it to the right length
Cut the cord to a length about 1,5 times your wrist.
Step 3: Dividing the strands
Cut the cord into three strands with roughly the same size.
Step 4: Braiding
Braid the strands until it fits around your wrist. I used some cellotape to make sure it didn’t come loose.
Step 5: Sewing it shut.
Pull the strands through the other side of the clasp like this:
Make sure to cellotape them to each other to make the sewing easier
Then with a few stitches sew each strand together. This is how it’ll look:
Step 6: Cutting of the loose edges
Cut of the extra pieces of the strands. My keycord shredded a lot, so I had to cut of all those little strings too
And that’s it! I think it turned out quite nice and the cool thing is that you can use the clasp that is already on the keycord
