There were lots of things I needed for the cuff, which I didn't have with me here in France, like seed beads to make those beautiful leaves with, or a nice big rose, or the right kind of ink, or stamp, or embroidery thread, or velcro etc etc, so I had to improvise a bit. But I did it, I finished it this afternoon in my craftavan! I used some gorgeous antique French lace, seed pearls, Swarovski crystals, and a few petals from a flower garland in the cottage, a few little beads, a snippet of Battenburg tape lace, errm, what else? Can't remember. Just take a look at the pics, lol -
This is what I had shown you in a previous post, the fabrics I used for the base, and the completed base -
And this is the embellished completed cuff -
I have tiny wrists, so it was a challenge to get lots of embellishments onto the cuff. There are a couple of things I would do differently the next time, but I am quite happy with the end result. I might just have to make another cuff, or two..........
Don't forget to hop over to Sandy's blog and check out the tutorial, it is incredibly detailed and just briliant. I would have never attempted a fabric cuff without her.
