Sapeurs Bangle

  • Bangle Pin-it%402x
  • Bangle-2 Pin-it%402x

Details

Inspired by Africa's most recognized fabric - the Dutch influenced wax print cotton, we're loving the juxtaposition of this bangle with other tonal prints and patterns. Easy to wear with anything, let this piece make the outfit.

Tools

  • scissors
  • E6000 (optional)

Materials

  • resin bangle
  • African print fabric

Time

10 minutes
Sb-1 Pin-it%402x

Gather your tools and materials.

Sb-2 Pin-it%402x

Pull the fabric through the bangle leaving at least 6" as a tail. The fabric does have a front and back. Make sure the whiter, less saturated side is facing the bangle.

Sb-3 Pin-it%402x

Holding onto the tail, start wrapping the bangle with the fabric. Keep it taught and overlap the fabric slightly as you make your way around.

Sb-4 Pin-it%402x

Go all the way around the bangle until you reach the tail you started with.

Sb-6 Pin-it%402x

Knot the two sides together. Double knot so it doesn't come out.

Sb-7 Pin-it%402x

Trim your ends at an angle.

Sb-8 Pin-it%402x

Ta-da!

Sb-10 Pin-it%402x

If you don't want a small tie you can use the glue to secure the ends of the fabric on the inside.

Sb-9 Pin-it%402x

For a statement, stack with wooden bangles and gold chain bracelets.

I really like the bracelets, but I can't wear them because my hands are too wide (about 4" from side to side). Please consider using larger bracelets or having some sizing options. Thanks.

*For those with smaller wrists*: I'd imagine it's difficult to do different sizing options with so many orders. The bangles are actually always too big for me. BUT, I've found that by putting 1-2 layers of double sided mounting tape on the inside of the bangle before wrapping with the fabric is a great solution for those with smaller wrists. It's sticky on both sides, so it actually helps with wrapping the fabric, as the fabric stays in place really well.

Just made this on my lunch break. LOVE. There's nothing like an instant-gratification project to make Monday brighter. The bright colors on this fabric are so great for summer - will wear this a LOT!

Hi @charityborne we had ours made for the kit but you can search terms like acrylic bangle, plastic bangle, or resin bangle to find some similar styles at reasonable prices.
