From the Blogger: "This tutorial is for denim lovers. In a few steps, you’ll learn how to make a denim bracelet using your old denim scraps. A super easy project that can be finished under one hour. So, grab some scraps, fabric interfacing, and a button, and start making one for yourself or for your loved ones. This is the perfect way to put to use your old denim shirt or jeans.

Materials List

  • Denim fabric (use scraps, old jeans, or shirt)
  • Fabric interfacing
  • Cotton thread
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Iron
  • Elastic cord
  • Button

How to Make Your Bracelet


  1. First determine the length and width of your bracelet. Measure your wrist and add 3 cm (mine was 15 + 3 = 18 cm for the length of the panel). The width of the panel was 6 cm. Cut the interfacing based on your denim panel.

  2. Apply the interfacing, on the wrong side of the denim panel. Then, fold 0.5 cm and stitch on both sides.

  3. Before folding, trim the four corners of the panel a bit. Fold the fabric edges to the center and press.

  4. Fold again so that the raw edges are enclosed and the folded edges meet. Cut a 3cm elastic, fold it in half, and stitch it to form a button loop. Put the button loop between the folds. Pin the bracelet and topstitch all around, as directed on the picture below.

  5. Position the button on the other side of the bracelet, 0.5 cm from the edge, and sew.

Jewelry from old denims. What a perfect idea. Teens love their jeans and to be able to sport denim on the wrist is a novel idea. I am sure tween girls will like it more than any other group of young adults. Maybe even personalize with names or designs. Endless possibilities.

BLING! Dont forget the bling. These bracelets would be so cute and unique with a few beads, fancy stitching, rhinestones, etc. Heck, why not make them a bit wider and add some machine embroidery to some. Im hoping to try some of these ideas in the near future, as soon as get all my other projects done oh why wait these are so quick they could be made in the middle of other projects.

One of my favorite things to do is upcycle or recycle. When I find projects like this, I jump right in and make a lot of them. During the holiday drives, I always have a unique item to donate.

What a great bracelet this upcycle Denim one is and so simple and easy to make using jean scraps, interfacing a small piece of elastic and a button.I bet teens love these. They are so cool looking. Why not make some for all your friends to enjoy too while you are making one for you and make some others out of other fabric scraps too. this will also be a fun summer project too.
