Upcycled scraps as wearable jewelry

It is difficult for me to throw away my fabric scraps. I feel like there is value in the smallest bit however, accumulating these pieces result in baskets and piles of....well, scraps.

I've had a drawer of seatbelt webbing for some time because I've always thought they'd make great cuffs. Finally, I bought some snaps and made these. I'm wondering what took me so long. They were easy and fun to make. What's more, I found some fun brads (they look like screw heads) that add a funky detail.

I also have scraps of leather that I used to make these fun rings.

Both cuffs and rings are lightweight and fun to wear. Even the boys love them and immediately depleted my new stock.

I'm currently making some with reflector ribbon which will be great for dog walking and running at night. I love it when a plan or idea comes together!

  2. They look really cool...I could use a dog walking one with reflectors. What a great idea!

  3. I love the seatbelt cuffs, they are really fun. But I love everything you do with seatbelts.

  4. LOVE the seatbelt cuffs! Have to get one of those for hubby. Are they in your shop? I must go investigate...
