The other day I saw a great tutorial on another blog for this but now can't find it anywhere. If anyone else has seen this tutorial please let me know so tat I can give the blogger credit!

This was very quick and easy to do. We took a mini vacation and I made this during the car ride.

Scraps of material
Needle and thread
Rubber bracelets

Cut the material into a long strip (my strips ranges from 1/2 an inch to 1 inch wide).  

Then I sewed one end of the fabric to the back of the bracelet. As you can see - my bracelets are Harry Potter themed. :-) I got them when I bought the last Harry Potter book at the midnight book selling. 

 Then I just wrapped the material around the very-cool Harry Potter bracelets. Make sure to wrap the material tightly!

For one bracelet I did not have very long strips so I used three shorter strips. I just sewed the new strip onto the bracelet in the same way I started the material strip. You can't even see where one piece of material ends and the new one starts. 
Once I got to the end I just sewed the material onto the back of the bracelet. When I sewed it I made it so that the thread is only visible on the back side of the bracelet. With the white thread it is only this visible on the red bracelet but since this is the underside you can't see it when you wear the bracelet.

 All three bracelets are done! You could trim down the strings from the loose edges but I'm going to leave it - I like how it looks.
 Two bracelets with Duluth in the background. :-)
The teal one is a for a friend and the red and green ones are for me. I'm wearing them both today and love them. Now I just need to figure out how to acquire more of these rubber bracelets so I can make some more...
