It is necessary to mention that the bracelet clasp, some might call not Fenichka, and a bracelet. However, closure is still needed, if jewelry is not allowed to wear in school or at work, or if you just like variety in itself. So, if you are principled hippie – feel free to make baubles on the clasp.
For example, for a textile that is linked from the iris or other thread baubles quite suitable fastener strap. Metal buckle, you can buy in any store for needlework. Weave bracelet must have the same width, which is at the buckle. Before the weaving threads separately attach the loops on the middle partition of the buckle, and then braid bracelet pattern is selected. Decoration length should be 2-3cm shorter than the circumference of the wrist. When the string is ready, the remains of the threads need to tie knots in pairs, the decoration has not dissolved, the ends of the threads to fold and sew small stitches to the wrong side. After you sew about half a centimeter, the excess thread can be cut. Then, from the soft thin leather or leatherette cut out two identical strap of suitable width, length approximately 4-5 cm. by hand or on the sewing machine sew the straps on two sides by the end of the baubles so that they fully covered the hemmed ends of the thread. Sew the straps together. You only have to pierce a thick needle several holes in the strap, and the Fennec could be easily worn.
For beaded jewelry is more suitable clasps made from beads. Metal snap-hooks or magnetic locks is also possible, but with the ideology of the hippies, the metal is not combined at all. To make the clasp beads, the ends of baubles you will have to do not straight, and triangular. Begin to weave a bracelet with large beads through which miss all the major threads. A bit continue with the clasp, strung bead after 3-4 beads. Then braid bracelet as planned. When you are done, also collect all the threads and thread them through a few beads. From the resulting "tail" make a loop of sufficient diameter for the passage of the beads.
Another way to secure the bracelet on the arm to make a regular tie. To do this, simply leave the long ends of yarns when weaving with two sides, and when the bracelet is ready – weave them into braids. To learn how to wear and tie on hand this ornament, you will need some skill, but after a little practice you will easily be able to do it.
How to finish the bracelet? There are a few ways how to finish the bracelet. Method 1. 1. Braid pigtails on both sides of the baubles. (Here you can see how to weave braid.) You will also need thread, preferably of the same color as the string, that it was not visible.
When finished bracelet (you can find this out just by trying on the hand, consider only a little space to tie the bracelet), tie a regular knot with all threads, and then make a pigtail. This bracelet can be made and unbalanced, to do this, first pick a thread without symmetry.
Advice 2: How to weave baubles of the two lines
Bright cotton bracelets are popularly called baubles. It is inexpensive, but artfully hand woven decoration, is particularly popular in children and youth. Learn to weave baubles can learn, even a child – fortunately, today there are many instructions and descriptions of simple and complex models and patterns. First you need to master the weaving of the two threads – the worker and the axial, as well as special nodes.
You will need
- - embroidery floss;
- - scissors;
Select the simple model of decoration and not too intricate a pattern to weave baubles. Once you learn the basic techniques of work, you can proceed to more intricate schemes. For training you will need two skeins of thread floss assorted colors. Their length should be about 1 m, i.e. several times more than the future decoration.
Take the axial filament (No. 1) – on it you will make the nodes from the working thread (it can be called No. 2). Align both lines and at a distance of 7-10 cm from the tip tie in a knot (this is the future plot of the bracelet).
Pierce is received by the node pin and secure it to the pillow. Thread number 1 and number 2 divide.
Pull the left hand axis, and the right grab the working thread and wrap its axis, making the movement from left to right.
Drag the tip of the thread # 2 of the formed loops, then carefully remove the ready-right hinge knot up.
Make in the same way the second node, moving it close to the previous one. Don't tighten it very tight. Before you double the knot. Now thread number 1 and number 2 changed their places and functions.
Do the left loop knot is similar, but in mirror image. Making the working thread and double knot, move from right to left.
Learn basic right and left turn. Right: axial filament must be done by the working thread right loop node, then – left. For the left: the working thread executes a loop left, then right.
When thread bracelet of the required length is ready, tie it "tails" of the knot and trim the brim with scissors.
When you learn to weave baubles of the two lines, you can try to work with three, then with a large number of threads. For convenience, choose the colorful floss and lay them in order (for example, even – red, odd orange, etc.). You need a string from the left side to tie double knots on each successive string until the working thread will not become extreme right. Then you will again begin to work with the left thread; continue to act on the sample.
Advice 3: How to weave baubles of beads
One of the most common ways to make flat bracelets out of beads is to weave them into the machine. This technology allows for impressive-looking baubles with complicated patterns. The machine for such work can be made in a few minutes.
You will need
- - beads;
- - threads;
- - fine needle;
- - a machine for weaving;
- diagram of the pattern.
Before starting, make a sketch of the pattern that will brighten your bracelet. The ornament can be drawn on paper in a cage, because when machined, each bead would correspond to one cell of the pattern. On the bracelet will look nice narrow scheme for cross stitch or patterns for knitting.
If your order was not ready the machine, do it. It will need a Board whose length must be greater than the length of the finished bracelet and tie inches to six. Hammer nails at each end of the Board so that they could consolidate the threads, which will form the basis of your weaving. The number of nails on each end of the Board should be not less than the number of rows in a future bracelet.
Pull the nails thread basis. Threads should be one more than series in baubles. Cut the working thread, which you will thread the beads and RUB it with wax. After this treatment she will be less confused.
Pass the working thread a needle and tie a knot in the end based on the number that you want to start weaving. If you start to weave with the closest row, the width of the baubles will be the same throughout its length. If to fix the end of the working thread on one of the rows near the center, the bracelet will shrink on the edges.
Wear on working thread two beads of the background color if the bracelet contains an even number of rows. In order to begin to weave tapered on the edges of the bracelet with an odd number of rows, you will need four beads. If you are doing rectangular bracelet same width, gain as much beads, how many rows contain the future of the product.
Place the working thread with the beads on top of a base perpendicular to its direction so that each bead got between the two threads. Thread the needle through all the beads toward you so that the working thread is passed under the base. If your bracelet tapers at the edges, increase the number of beads in the second column in two pieces. Expand your bracelet, until you gain the number of beads corresponding to the number of rows.
To get on the bracelet pattern you choose to weave, check the schematic and enter the string desired number of beads of the background color. In accordance with the scheme add beads of the shade, which will gain the elements of a pattern. It is easy to remember the number and color of beads you need to string to create geometric patterns. If you weave more complicated pattern, put a ruler on the diagram and move it so you can see the column that you are typing.
After braiding, secure the working thread with several knots and cut the warp threads. Can RUB the remnants of the base wax to twist them into three plait and braid pigtails.
