Sometimes, it’s fun to create with sewing, away from the sewing machine. Give your machine a rest with this fun DIY project, a hexagon bracelet tutorial that requires a little bit of hand sewing for an awesome result.
We love sewing projects that don’t require a machine, because they can be taken with you on-the-go, or can be taught to younger children that may not be able to use a machine quite yet. This “Hexie” bracelet from Always Expect Moore also requires such few materials, that you can get started asap from your stash, without necessarily making a trip to the fabric store! If you’d prefer a fresh new palette, picking out some fat quarters would be a fun way to get smaller pieces of a variety of fabrics.
This bracelet project uses heavy interfacing to make the material stiff, great for a bangle. We can also see you using Phoomph, an awesome project that adheres directly to the fabric and provides the sturdiness of an interfacing, too! Pick up some Phoomph from any major fabric retailer — it’s super simple to use and is great for hand sewing projects like this one.
