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

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! 


  1. So cute! And how stinky cute are your pins?! Love it

  2. Thanks guys! Jaime, those pins are from Walmart! They are awesome, they lay flatter and are longer then regular pins. :)

  3. Soo cute - great idea!

  5. I LOVE this! WOW! Thanks for linking up at Trendy Treehouse

  6. This is a fantastic idea and great tutorial. Would love it if you would link up at my party!




  7. The vintage fabric is my favorite detail on these.

  8. So cute! Can you tell me what parts of the sweather you used for the purses?

  9. 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!

  10. Oh, nuts. Well, Connie, I tried to email you, but I can't find your email address! I hope you check back! :)
