Zipper Bracelet

DIY Tutorial: Zipper Bracelet | @onelmon

Summer is almost here everyone (yay!) and today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make a bracelet from zippers with pop bright colors to brighten up your look! I saw a pack of colorful zippers sold in Daiso (¥100 shop, something similar to A Dollar store) the other day and I thought this is the chance to try my new sewing machine that has just arrived! Today’s craft will only need minimal sewing but if you don’t sew, you can always substitute all the sewing steps with glueing. Here goes the how to!

Musim panas akan segera tiba di sini (di Indonesia mungkin masih musim hujan ya) dan hari ini saya berbagi tutorial cara membuat gelang warna-warni dari resleting! Saya membeli satu pak resleting dari Daiso yang dijual dalam beragam warna. Karena mesin jahit baru saya juga baru tiba, saya pikir ini kesempatan baik untuk mencobanya. Craft kali ini hanya butuh jahitan simpel tapi bila anda tidak menjahit, anda bisa mengganti semua langkah jahitan dengan lem. Yuk dicoba!

Step 1:
Cut a piece of felt. Dimension 4.5 cm x length (one round of your wrist).

Langkah 1:
Gunting sehelai kain flanel dengan dimensi 4.5 cm x panjang (lingkar pergelangan tangan).

Step 2:
Take two zippers, right side facing each other and sew the two together. Repeat for the third zipper. Note: You can use glue if you don’t sew ;)

Langkah 2:
Ambil 2 resleting dan sambung jahit keduanya dengan kancing berhadapan satu sama lain. Ulangi langkah yang sama untuk resleting yang satunya lagi. Catatan: Anda dapat menggunakan lem untuk langkah ini ;)

Step 3:
Apply a thin layer of glue on four sides of the felt and stick it to the middle of the zippers.

Langkah 3:
Beri sedikit lem pada keempat sisi flanel dan tempelkan pada bagian tengah dari resleting.

Step 4:
Pull the sliders to the middle and cut the excess off using the felt as guide.

Langkah 4:
Tarik resleting ke bagian tengah dan potong sisanya sesuai ukuran flanel.

Step 5:
Sew (or glue) the last zipper to the end of the zippers. Repeat for the other end. Note that the other end is a little bit tricky to sew. I actually just glued it temporarily and sewn it later when everything is finished.

Langkah 5:
Jahit (atau rekat) resleting terakhir pada salah satu ujung gabungan 3 resleting tadi. Ulangi untuk ujung yang satunya lagi. Ujung lainnya akan lebih sulit untuk dijahit. Anda bisa menggunakan lem untuk ini atau lakukan jahitan setelah semuanya selesai.

Step 6:
Cut the excess and make the zipper stoppers with thread.

Langkah 6:
Potong sisa resleting dan buat penahan resleting dengan benang.

Confession of the day: I made a mistake in measuring the length and only 4 of my fingers can go through :( Maybe I should repurpose this into a napkin ring and make a new one (with a proper measurement this time!)

Pengakuan hari ini: Saya melakukan kesalahan dalam mengukur panjang resleting dan akhirnya cuma 4 jari yang bisa melewati gelang ini :( Uwaaa
