A cool boho-esque bracelet, super quick and easy to make. From Aurélie Bidermann, these bracelets sell for a whopping $170 a pair. The fabric is just cotton (you can use fabric scraps for this) and the chain isn't gold or anything, it's silver-plated, the same you can buy at Michaels for a couple of bucks! And for the kicker, the bracelets are just tie-ons.
So...what are you actually paying for?!
Obviously I needed to turn these into a tutorial.

You can use any kind of fabric you want, just make sure it's thin cotton. Fabric scraps work really good!
Recycle with style!
Let's get started!
Step 1: Gather materials. Needed are scissors, a fabric scrap (mine was .5" wide by about 2' long), cable chain, a clasp and a large-eyed sewing needle.
Step 2: Thread the end of your fabric onto your needle. Leave about 3" free, behind the needle. Now, just weave the fabric in and out of the chain, starting at the end.
Step 3: Continue to weave. Bring the needle through one link to the back, then from the back to the front in the next link.
Step 4: When you've reached the ends of the chain, tie a knot with the fabric to hold it onto the chain. Then, just attach your clasps to either ends, and cut the fabric so there is a little more than 1" free. Finished!
