I had so much fun making the crazy quilt fabric cuff following Sandy Babb's excellent tutorial, that I decided to make another cuff. Different to the first one, of course, I didn't want it to be a copy of the first one.
I used a small doily for the focal point of the cuff, and embellished the cuff with beads, freshwater pearls, Swarovski AB crystals and other bits and pieces -
Like the first one, it is lined with a very soft vintage French flannel fabric. I could get quite used to wearing these cuffs, I think they look gorgeous on your wrist. Perhaps not when I am grubbing around in the garden, planting my tomatoes, lol. Ah well, there is no chance of that at the moment anyway. Yes you guessed it, it is chucking it down again. We had a couple of hours of no rain this morning, which was very fortuitous, as there was a little brocante near us. Found a few things, but minutes after we got back home, it started raining again. And hasn't stopped since.
Do you know what? Just to cheer myself up, I think I will have a little giveaway. Fancy a fabric wrist cuff for yourself? Leave a comment on THIS post, and in a week or so I will draw a winner. I'll make a custom wrist cuff for you, and might just include a brocante find or two....... Hmm. As I have only just thought of the giveaway, I will have to have a think about the details, dates etc. I'll let you know in my next post, but start leaving your comment HERE right now.
Have a lovely weekend wherever you are, toodlepip xxx
