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)



Instructions

  • 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!

    Step 2

    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"

    Here I have my 2 coordinating fabric pieces already cut out and some matching ribbons to embelish it with!

    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.

    Step 7

    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.

  • How to make a fabric cuff. Fabric Wristcuff - Step 8
    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!!!
