1. Take one Shoelace and fold in the middle. Tie a knot so that it makes a loop at the end. You now have two ends. Tape shoelace loop to a flat surface to begin.

2. Take needle & thread & pierce through shoelace loop. This needle and thread will be used throughout the bracelet so make sure it’s long enough to work with.

6. After you’ve made your length, sew the 2 shoelaces together in the middle. Choose a button that will fit the loop at the top of your bracelet. Sew that button on the end of your bracelet.
