Flower Cuff Tutorial

Good morning all!! I'm so excited to share this week's tutorial with you! Remember my Green Sweater Purse? Well, I had a few scraps left over and thought they would contribute nicely to a pretty cuff/bracelet. This was so super easy to make and looks so pretty on. I used a vintage sheet to make the flower and the lining, so this project is a complete refashion!


You will need:

Scraps of a sweater large enough to fit around your wrist
Scraps to make a flower/rosette
Matching thread
Sewing machine
Hand sewing needle
Pins
Scissors


Let's get started!















Isn't it so much fun?!  I love it.  I thought about adding a large bead to the center of the flower, but, I want to keep it baby friendly so that if my son wants to play with it he can.  But, I think a pretty bead would look really pretty on it.  Just some food for thought. ;)

I'll be linking up to the fabulous linky parties on the right!

  8. Connie, I'm going to send you an email in a minute, but I'll answer here too in case anyone else has a similar question. :)

    I think I used a piece of the left over sleeve. But really, you can use any piece of the sweater that you think is pretty and is long enough to wrap around your wrist and that you can still slide your hand out of. I would reccomend cutting with the kintting. So, that means on most sweaters you would want to cut a piece length wise NOT cross wise. Does that make sense I hope?!

    I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm happy to help.

    When you're done, I'd love to see your finished piece! :) Send me a link or llink it up to my party!
