Fold your leather in half and string on your button, placing it in the center of the leather.
Tie an overhand knot to attach your button. Pull out an arm's-length of thread, and hold the thread alongside your leather when you make your knot.
Loop one end of the thread several times through the knot, this will make a secure connection between the thread and leather.
Bring your thread to the outside of the two strands of leather to begin.
Pass behind the leather on the left side, add a bead, and pass over the leather on the right side.
Pass behind the leather on the right side and back through the bead.
Pass over the leather on the left side.
Pass under the leather on the left side to start your 2nd row.
Add a bead, and pass over the leather on the right side.
Pass behind the leather on the right side.
Pass back through the bead, and over the leather on the left side.
Continue adding beads until you are about 1"-2" from the desired length of your bracelet.
Knot your leather together with the thread in an overhand knot.
The thread end can be looped a couple of times through the leather knot before the knot is completely tightened.
Knot around the leather just below your knot, and sew through the loop before tightening.
Make another knot in the leather about 1" from the first knot.
Pass through a bead several rows before your current row.
Stitch back through the same bead to secure your thread.
Pass around the leather on the left, and stitch through the same bead another time.
Pass around the leather on the right, and stitch through the same bead a final time.
Now pass down through the next bead in the row.
Wrap around the leather and pass down through the final existing bead.
Start adding new beads as before.
Once you are done with the bracelet, put a dot of glue on each side of the bead where thread was added.
