A quick tutorial to add to your arm candy this ss12!




  1. Step 1 1

    Materials needed:

    Rope – 4 strands, 30cm each (I got mine from Daiso!)
    2 Leather Strips – Cut to 3.5cm each
    Snap buttons

  2. Step 2 2

    1. Make a loop by bringing one end of the rope across the other.

  3. Step 3 3

    2. With the above image as a guide, thread your second strand through as above.

  4. Step 4 4

    3. Bring the bottom right end under, over and under. It sounds complicated but following the pictures closely should leave you with right knot! :>

  5. Step 5 5

    4. You should have this by now. If not, don’t fret! Just go through the steps again to make sure your rope was looped through correctly.

  6. Step 6 6

    5. Get another strand of rope and follow the first strand through the loop.

  7. Step 7 7

    6. Do the same with your last strand of rope. Follow your second strand through the loop.

  8. Step 8 8

    7. Now you have your knot!

  9. Step 9 9

    8. Pull your knot taut.

  10. Step 10 10

    9. Snip your ends even for both sides.

  11. Step 11 11

    10. Fold your leather strips in half to gauge if it holds your ends nicely.

  12. Step 12 12

    11. Sew on your snap buttons.

  13. Step 13 13

    12. One side done! Sew on the other side of the snap buttons to another piece of leather strip.

  14. Step 14 14

    13. Tuck your rope ends into the fold of your leather strip and start sewing around the open edges to secure it.

  15. Step 15 15

    14. This is how it should look when you’re done sewing.

  16. Step 16 16

    15. Repeat for the other end of your bracelet, but do note that your snap buttons should be facing opposite directions, or you won’t be able to snap your bracelet on!

  17. Step 17 17

    16. You’re done! Your snap closure should look like this if you’ve done it right. :)
