I love wristcuffs!
I made me this little wristcuff out of this adorable fabric the other day and embroidered "mama" on it and my husband (who doesn't understand) said " do you need that to remind yourself that you're a mama? bah!
I have a 2 and 5 year old and I'm 9 months pregnant!!!
I think I know I'm a mama!
men! :o)

  • How to make a fabric cuff. Fabric Wristcuff - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut a piece of paper the width you want your cuff to be but add 1/2" for seam allowance.
    Then wrap it around your wrist to measure how long you will need it to be. Mark it and cut.
    This is your pattern!

    I'm plus size so my cuff is a little larger then the average but here you can see I have my cuff measuring 7 1/2" X 1 1/2"

    Step 4

    I sewed on the different ribbons and rick rack with straight stitch and zigzag stitches and then decided I wanted to put "Mama" on it to personalize it a little.
    I found this cool rolling letter stamp at Michaels and used a perminant stamp pad by VersaCraft.
    Some of the letters didn't stamp perfect so I touched them up with my perminant pigma pen to make them complete.

    Step 5

    cut off a piece of elastic @ 3 to 4 inches long to make a loop that you'll attach your button to, make sure the loop faces in so when you turn it out it will be positioned right. I run a little stitch back and forth to secure it so it stays in place while I sew around the fabric.

    Step 6

    place your other piece of wristcuff fabric on top of your embelished piece and your ready to sew 1/4" seam around the whole thing. Make sure you leave an opening in the middle of the long side for turning.

    Here it is sewn, with an opening for turning.
    Clip the corners so it lays nice and turn!

    If you click on the picture you can see where I leave the opening for turning, it's in the middle on the top.

    Step 8

    Sew a straight stitch all the way around about 1/8" in from the edge, this also closes up the opening you had for turning.
    You're almost done!!!!!

    Step 9

    Sew your button on with double thread and you're finished!
    sometimes I don't measure right and it comes out a little too small or too big, but thats OK!
    Just put it away to give as a gift or sell at a show sometime!
    Have fun and make sure you post your new cool wristcuffs!!!
