Valentine Bracelet Directions

For a young child's bracelet 2 1/2" diameter. Add more hearts and beads to enlarge. 

Materials:
small piece red wool felt
small beads
.7mm Stretch Magic elastic
red embroidery floss
heart pattern

[1] Copy pattern.

[2] Cut out 2 hearts for each heart on bracelet (I needed 4 finished hearts so I cut out 8 hearts.) To make hearts match when sewing, cut two out at a time and keep them pinned together.

[3] Using 2 strands of embroidery floss, blanket stitch two hearts together.

[4] Thread Stretch Magic elastic on a needle that will fit through your beads.

[5] Leaving a 5" tail of elastic, string 1 heart and 5 beads until you reach the desired length. (Slide the needle between the 2 layers of hearts so the thread cannot be seen. String through the widest part of the heart.

[6] Tie the ends of the elastic and string the ends through a few beads hide ends.
