Last minute DIY gift idea 4 your mom: rope bracelet

Today is mother's day! Did you remember to take a gift for her or you spent these days shopping for yourself? Shame on you! ;) You've been selfish but i'll give you the chance to amend with this last minute idea. You'll be able to craft a gift with what you have at home!

Oggi è la festa della mamma! Vi siete ricordati di comprarle un regalo o avete fatto shopping solo per voi? Ah,siete stati egoisti! :P Ma oggi vi darò l'oppurtunità di riscattarvi. Anche se è domenica potrete preparare un regalo dell'ultimo minuto per mammuzza bedda con quello che avete a casa!

You'll need:
Avrete bisogno di:

the proof of guilt= bag handles from your shopping bags
la prova della vostra colpevolezza: i manici delle buste dello shopping

some beads
a ribbon or a shoe lace

that's all!

qualche perlina
un nastrino di raso o un laccio di scarpe

wave the robe a bit
date al cordino una forma ondulata

make a loop and insert the needle into the rope
add a bead
insert the needle into the rope again

fate un cappio
inserite l'ago nella corda
inserite una perlina
infilate l'ago nuovamente nella corda

make another loop and insert the needle into the rope

fate un altro cappio e inserite l'ago nella corda

continue inserting a bead

continuate inserendo una perlina

repeat the steps

ripetete il procedimento

now repeat the same steps on the other side

ripetete il procedimento sull'altro lato

sew one bag handle after the other and complete the bracelet
use a ribbon or a shoe lace to make the closure

cucite un manico dopo l'altro e completate il braccialetto
usate un nastrino di raso o un laccio di scarpe come chiusura

You've done!
E' fatto!

Do you like it?
Happy Mother's day to all moms!

Tanti auguri a tutte le mamme!

This is beautiful darling! For mother's day, or for any day. I love the colors you chose, this is a great summer accessory! Plus, I love reusing things (like bag handles!) that would normally be discarded.
