Wrap the cord around your wrist. Make sure it is large enough to slip over your hand, but not large enough to slip off easily. Then add about 1 inch for the seam. It's better to cut it a little longer and take off length if you need to. Apply fabric glue to one end of the strip of fabric. It should go on the wrong side of the fabric.
Place your fabric on the diagonal in relation to the cord, and then begin wrapping with the top corner of the glue side of the fabric. Start about 2" in from one end of the cord. Pull fabric snugly as you work, trying to get out as many wrinkles as possible. Don’t forget to leave enough fabric to finish wrapping once the cord ends have been sewn together. Keep wrapping the fabric around the cord until there is about 1 inch of cord not covered with fabric.
Sew the ends of the cord together. Overlap the ends by about an inch and join them together with two or three hand stitches. Trim off all of the thread and extra bulk. Once you have finished wrapping and have covered the seam, apply glue to the edge of the fabric and secure.
Once you have finished wrapping and like the look of the piece, set it aside to dry. Usually, wait about half an hour before wrapping the thread.
Using the full 6 stranded embroidery thread, cut a long piece to wrap around the entire piece of jewellery. Add a second color of the thread if you'd like to. Use the same steps to begin and end the thread. Clip and discard all of the excess thread once you have securely knotted it. Once wrapped, the jewellery is finished and ready to wear.
