Off the cuff

There wasn't much left from the shirt that I altered in my last post apart from a few scraps and the collar and cuffs.  I've also got the cuffs from the shirt of my husband's that I shortened the sleeves of here (which for the record he likes and he didn't say anything about the little birdy on the pocket).

I've had a great time playing about with fabric, lace, buttons,beads and ribbon and made some cuff bracelets

I really like this orange one but it's not my colour.  It's the first time I've made flowers like these and I've done all the centres differently.  A plain button in one, French knots in another and the last one, a button with yellow stamens in embroidery thread (I got the stamens idea from Kirstie's Handmade Britain the other week).

I'm keeping the blue one for myself and I've put the other two in my Folksy shop.  


  1. These are very cute. The blue one is really pretty :)


  2. Really fab idea, i love them :D
