More Rag Bracelets

Since these were made for friends, I wish I could have posted these last week for the Created by Hand challenge. The theme was friendship/love but I had to wait unit I had a chance to give them to there new owners. I actually had made another black one but I did not get a picture of it... drats! I had needed a last minute gift so I used the first one so I got busy and made the black one yesterday. I am so distressed now that I look at the picture I realized I forgot the beads on that one : /

They are all made with hand dyed fabric's and ribbon, antique buttons, lace and soldered charms. Most were dyed in the standard dye method but I did the gray with the microwave method. It was the first time I had used that method and for such a small amount of fabric it worked so great!

I, too, like the red one!!!

Actually, I was privileged to see all three and each one was beautiful; however, oriental is my passion and red it is!

Besides, I am now the proud owner. Thank you so much Inka. You are a true, treasured friend and I love the personal touch you put into mine.
