Free Chain Maille Tutorials (7/14/2014)
If you are comfortable with using tools, chainmaille can be a lot of fun. When I started doing chainmaille, mostly sterling silver rings were used, but the silver prices went up. Now there are not only base metal rings, but the wonderfully colorful anodized aluminum rings.They are much lighter and much less expensive. The colors are bright and cheery. Try some today!

Many chain mail patterns have vividly creative names, like the one in this tutorial. It is called Dragon Back, a name that isn’t so out of the blue, as the center ridge of the chain looks a bit like a dragon’s spine. The pattern looks complicated, but is not so difficult to make. Like most chain mail patterns it may take a while to get it right from the start, but once you are over that bit, it gets easier.

This gorgeous bag offers a way to reuse the tabs from soda cans. The final pattern created by the tabs looks a bit like chain maille or fish scales, but either way, it’s ever-so stylish. The proportions can be adjusted for other laptops, or to make other bag sizes. To make sure that the laptop will fit, you’ll need to be sure to keep your seams as narrow as possible, or add a little bit to all of the pieces to allow for extra room.

I’ve been having an education through my friend Sharyn, who’s recently fallen into the craft with a passion. She got me this Nouveau kit through Blue Buddha Boutique, and it’s a great beginner’s project; I finished in just a few hours with almost no prior experience. The instructions in chainmaille kits are usually sold separately, but right now this one’s free to download if you want to check it out.
