these are simple great ways to use up those abandoned sleeves from you shredded tees
these go with my my chemical romance shirt that i turned into a dress. they remind me of something offa a Kiss concert. these super easy to make i closed mine with plastic snaps but you could do buttons and button holes or lace em up or whatever. mine do this nifty over lap thing. i would totally get a snap press if your going to sew or make a lot of cuffs the setter is pretty affordable and the snaps are really cheep.

this is the one i have

31$ and i buy all my snaps from kamsnaps.com you can by em for like 100 for 6$ i think. plus you can get star ones and ones with images in them or whatever.

these are kinda plain right now i duno i might add some kinda something to em later not sure what.

    then i just put the snaps in. i folded it over my arm and poked the holes with it on my arm so they were tight. i have these little tails sticking out the bottom that are awesome i originally wanted to lace it up but this was just kewl. i would tighten it just a bit to much cuz it will stretch. and done!

    you can sew in some lace or grommet tape or whatever yeah mine are plain but in out of grommet tape /cry an i have to make or order more.
