Making a beach bracelet

This was a fun project for the beach retreat.  I found some foam coozies at Michael's and cut them in 3 slices. We dyed strips of muslin with Walnut Ink, and put them out in the wind to dry. Wrap the muslin around the foam ring and glue with Aleene's Fabric Fusion. Time to embellish with tiny shells, beads, jewels, lace, whatever. I arranged my jewels on a piece of lace and tacked it to the bracelet with a few stitches.
I think you could wear this in the water, however it

was too chilly to test this trip.
