how to: make a braided scarf bracelet!

February 22, 2011

Hi lovelies!
So, I’ve had a few questions about the braided bracelets in my denj lookbook; mystery revealed? it’s just a 9″x60″ scarf all braided up! And, if you are feeling so inclined, you can find some pretty scarves to make a bracelet with in my etsy shop. But in the meantime, I thought I’d show you all how to do it yourself: below is the step-by-step, I tried to make it as clear as possible, so it looks like there are a lot of steps, but it’s really easy I promise!

1. To begin the braided bracelet, you need a long thin scarf.

2. Create 3 “strands” for your braid by folding the middle,
keep the ends slightly longer than the middle strand.

3. Use your finger, or whatever is easiest, to anchor your braid and create a loop at the top.

4. Braid with your 3 “strands” as usual.

5. When you get closer to the bottom you should have another loop
created by the middle that you folded earlier.

6. Braid until the loop is as small as possible around your finger,

7. Pull your longest strand through the loop and pull tight as below.

8. Pull the same strand partially through the top loop

9. Put on your wrist, and pull tight,

10. and tie it in a knot of course!

easy right? let me know if you have any questions, any at all.

I didn’t realize until I was editing these pictures that I was wearing valentines colours! how very appropriate. This purse is has been a favourite of mine for years, one of the reasons that I love shopping at Winners. There are so many gems to be found there! The fur collar is the one  that I picked up at 69 Vintage a few weeks ago, I’ve been using it to winterize and warm up lighter coats and cardigans, it’s so versatile I love it!
I hope you all have a lovely valentines day full of chocolate kisses and cinnamon hearts.

this month’s design + exciting announcement!!

December 14, 2010

This is another old pattern of mine, my apologies! BUT the good news is my design website [] is getting very close to completion! I did this pattern for my popular culture class in my 4th year at OCAD. We had to do a piece, in any medium, on one of the books we read in class, and I chose Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann. The book is basically the first Sex and the City, except with a lot more drugs and without the happy ending. Sounds depressing I know, but it was actually a really good book! but anyways this was my result!





DENJ handmade silk scarves will be available at the BICYCLETTE BOUTIQUE HOLIDAY POP-UP SALE!

make sure you check it out!
