Liberty Fabric and Bead Bracelet

I used precious scraps of beautiful Liberty fabric to make a beaded bracelet.

Some of the products I used to make this bracelet were provided by Pandahall.com
I love this Liberty fabric, I only have a few scraps left and wanted to make something worthwhile with them. After the ribbon and bead bracelet I made a few weeks I tried using strips of this fabric instead of the ribbon and I'm really pleased with how this has turned out.

To make this you will need:
A Selection of Jewellery Finding:
2 Ribbon Ends (mine are these silver colour 6mm ones from Pandahall) 
2 small round jump rings (mine are these 4mm from Pandahall)
1 larger jump ring (mine is a 7mm oval, from my stash)
1 lobster clasp (mine is this one from Pandahall)

And:
Scraps of fabric
Beads (mine are these porcelain ones from Pandahall)

The method is almost exactly the same as the Ribbon and Bead Bracelet except we are substituting ribbon for fabric. I cut 3 fabric strips each one 19cm x 3.5cm (that's about 7.5" x 1.5"). You can see how to calculate the right length for you on the ribbon and bead bracelet post, where I try hard not to overcomplicate!
I only used 3 lengths and I just pushed the ends into the beads with the end of a unravelled paper-clip instead of using a needle. These beautiful porcelain beads have a slightly larger hole then the little pearl ones I used before so that made it much easier with the fabric. Liberty lawn is so fine though it wasn't difficult to push it through.

Each bracelet I make like this is my new favourite AND I still have a little of the Liberty fabric left as this hardly used any - bonus!
