Leather Backpack or Purse Dangles

This leather dangle is a great way to add some fun and pizzaz to a purse or backpack. Send your favorite kid back to school with something new and is a reminder of how much you love them by giving them something handmade by you… just for them!

Directions:

  1. For each color of leather cut three pieces of each: 3.5″, 4″ and 4.5″ so that you have twelve pieces.
  2. Arrange the beads how you like them and then carefully glue the ball ends onto the leather (the tiniest drop of glue is all that will fit in there!).
  3. Wait at least fifteen minutes for the glue to cure.
  4. Arrange the tassels how you want them to hang, then temporarily hold them together toward the top with a rubber band.
  5. Cover the ends with glue and carefully put them into the TierraCast Makers cord end.
  6. Wait at least fifteen minutes for the glue to cure.
  7. Attach the lobster clasp with a jumpring.
  8. Voila! Your done 🙂

Variations:

  • Substitute other colors of 1.5 or 2mm round leather of your choice. You could even make them all the same or all different.
  • Substitute other colors of 2/0 magic beads.
  • Make the leather longer or shorter depending on how you like it.

Have fun with it!

Robyn.
