I did a DIY a few days ago Here and i didnt want to waist good fabric so i made a cople of bows out of the leaft overs.
Step1; cut the hem of the bottom.
Step2; run your fingers along the bottom of the fabric to fray the fabric to make it look scruffy.
Step3; cut the hem to fit around the middle of the bow.
Step4; place the middle in place and sew it up.
i made two of these one from each trouser leg.
I didnt know what to do with them i have made one into a cuff bracelet this is how i did that.
Step1; sew on 2 snap fasterner and your done easy as that !
an easy way to get a new bracelet and your not waisting anything!
