Obessive Much? A Whole Slew of Bracelets

So, I already showed you the bracelet I made as a giveaway (it's closed, sorry) and the two I made using smocking, but there are more.

Yeah, because I like variety, so I want a lot of different options when I go to wear something, and because when I get on an idea and I want to explore that idea. And then beat it to death. And then try to resurrect it and then sail around the world with it and kiss it shyly and marry it, and I think I'm starting (starting?) to mix my metaphors.

Anyway, most of these were done using the soda can tutorial. I ended up using the basic instructions, but then sewing the base fabric on and then hot gluing the embellishments on top of the base fabric. Very, very carefully so as little hot glue would show as possible.

And this isn't counting the three I made my sister for her birthday and the two I made for my friend Heidi and neglected to photograph. And. . . I don't think I'm done.

On the left is the front and on the right is the button closure.
