I've been wanting to try making one of these leather wrap bracelets for a while. I had some 4mm rounds that I knew I could use, and I bought some 1mm leather at Michaels for $2.49. I found a video on youtube showing how to make it. It was in spanish, but I could still understand it just by watching the pictures.
Boy, does that thing use a lot of thread! I think I pulled off about 12 feet. I doubled it, so then I had 6 feet, and I used almost all of it. It took a lot longer than I thought it would take too.
I really like it though. I haven't taken it off since I finished it.
