Officer, CUFF Me...Please!


Sew...I DO have some good stories about thinkin I'd be cuffed by
an officer on my cross country trek to Texas,
but I'll save that for another time.  ;)


I must say though, I have been obsessing about cuffs. A much
softer & much more beautiful kind of a cuff...
a Gorgeous Fabric Cuff Bracelet.


I've been wanting to make one for ever sew long. I love the one's made of
Leather & Lace & always think of the Stevie Nicks & Don Henley song
when I hear those two words together, but since I had no leather
mine would be made of scraps of fabric & lace.


Looking through my Jewelry Love Board on Pinterest, I saw a sweet
& simple cuff tutorial by Vintiquites Workshop & it inspired
me to get all my tiny bits & pieces of vintage love out
& try something new.


Here's the lovely cuff made by Thespoena McLaughlin & her awesome
TUTORIAL. Thank you SEW much for sharing this with us, your words
were just what I needed to guide me through these uncharted waters.


What I loved about her method was that all that it takes is some
scraps & a needle & thread. I also used some fabric glue
just to secure any loose frays of fabric.


I ADORE the way my cuff turned out & enjoyed making it so much,
I'm sure this will be my NEW jewelry craze for the moment!


Sew, like I said...Officer CUFF me, PLEASE!!! LOL

XOXO

It's beautiful! So romantic... I've just put away all my sewing projects because I got the urge to paint... Seems I have follow through problems...

Do I see pieces from those HUGE bins we dug through at Warrenton?? Oh how much fun was that. Do you know I have never found those women again. I don't know if they didn't come back or IF I am just a lost looser...

LOVE the cuff!!! Sandy made one for all of us last year but, I seldom wear it. I should get it out. AND... I bought the kit from Diane Cook (leather in that one) & never made it. SHAME!!!
HUGS! CP

Your cuff turned out so wonderfully! LOVE IT! You did an amazing job on it and I love that it's all tattered and blingy. So glad you made use of my tut and can't believe I haven't seen this till now. Hugs!
