I recently joined a group on Facebook
that does a lot of mixed media textile swaps.
We've done collages, tags, ATCs etc.
The newest swap was for a Fabric Cuff.
I have never made one before but loving the idea,
plus the opportunity to pull out my lace and sewing machine,
I jumped in.
I can't believe how quickly and easily this was.
Like layering paper, except this time it was
fabric and lace.
I went with a blue theme.
Mixing in some beige lace here and there.
As my focal I stitched on a fabric flower with a button
Added some beads and a metal butterfly.
We had an ice storm this past weekend and I am desperately wishing Spring was here.
This is how it looks on my wrist.
This is the side where it attaches.
I used a vintage Mother of Pearl button as my fastener so both sides
have something interesting on them.
Now that I have made my first I will definitely be making
more of these.
They are kind of addicting, and give you the perfect opportunity
to pull out all the lace & ribbon you've been hoarding.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
