My new favorite thing to make - fabric cuffs!

This is my new favorite thing to sew - fabric cuffs made of stray bits of ribbon, trim, vintage buttons, etc.

  • These two khaki cuffs are made with waistband from an old pair of pants.

  • The short edges are cut and sewn with exposed topstitching.

  • Some crochet bits and lace were tea stained.

  • Tattered edges are desirable.

  • Closure made with existing buttonhole, vintage button and pony tail elastic.

  • Velcro type hook and loop tape also used for closure

Thinking that future cuffs could also include a secret cash pocket!

Repurposed scraps, SkitzoLeezra style!
