crafty recycling

I made this bracelet using a piece of  plastic from a drink bottle.  I think it may have been a bottle of Franklin's spring water.

The ideal bottle would be one that has an hour glass figure and you cut out  your cuff from this.  I shaped the ends and then used this to cut out some felt.

Decorate your felt first and then blanket stitch it around the plastic cuff.  Great for recycling those plastic bottles!

I like the colour you used and it's clever to use plastic from a bottle. I'm just wondering if it's comfortable?

Yes it is really comfortable. That is probably because of the felt on both sides. I am thinking of using bigger bottles to make an arm band for disco clubbing nieces.
