Bracelet Making Instructions


Kids sewing projects

Print and cut out the shamrock bracelet template.

Note: the bracelet pattern is only a guide. Be sure to measure your own wrist and adjust the length of the band accordingly.

Next, trace and cut out the felt pieces. We used dark green for the bracelet, dark purple for the center strip, medium green for the shamrock and light green for the inner leaves. See photo A.


Sew the purple center strip down using the running stitch in light green thread. See photo B.

Place the shamrock in the center of the bracelet. To keep your knot in the center and not along the edge of the bracelet, start sewing the stem on from the center of the shamrock. Now using the running stitch in matching thread, sew the shamrock stem onto the bracelet. Work your way to the stem end and then back again to the center. When you are done, it will look like you used the backstitch, but be sure to use the running stitch so you can work your way back to the center. No need to knot your thread, just continue and sew on the inner leaves. They only need to be sewn on with a couple of stitches. Then sew 3 round beads in the center of the shamrock. See photo D.

On each side of the shamrock, sew 1 round bead and 3 oblong beads. See photo E.


Your shamrock bracelet is now finished! We also have a sewing tutorial for a matching felt barrette, which would look so cute with this bracelet! So be sure to check it out.
