Why is it that everything is so much cuter when it's tiny?
Ever since I found out I was having a girl I was obsessed with finding Sophie lots of accessories. Like she has more shoes than I do 😜 Any way ... mini accessories can be really expensive. While I try to buy a lot of her outfits and accessories from small businesses, I am a huge fan of making what I can. Or have time for.
I recently was going through my over abundance of craft supplies (I have a slight problem, ok) I found several strands of colored beads that I had bought during a sale at the craft store, that I had just been sitting on for several months, and a whole bag of letter beads that I had from a previous project. I immediately thought that Sophie needed some mini bracelets.
OMG! I was so right. These are literally the cutest things!
I even made us a set of matching MAMA + BABY bracelets. 😊 I love them all so much.
Here is what you need:
- stretchy string
- super glue
- measuring tape (optional)
I measured Sophie's wrist. I didn't want the bracelet to be too tight, but I also didn't want it to slide off if she was shaking her hands around. I cut a piece of string longer than my measurement. I wanted to be able to have enough extra string to tie it. Then I strung the word on the string. Next I laid the string flat and added colored beads evenly to each side until I reached the desired length. I tied the string tight and added a tiny dot of glue over the knot. Once the glue dried, I cut off the excess string.
My absolute favorite one is the NUGGET bracelet. I love it so much. I have Sophie wear it the most because she is my perfect little nugget :) What will you put on your bracelets?
