  • How to make a fabric cuff. How To Make A Dainty Button Cuff (Simple!) - Step 1
    Step 1

    Lay your piece of fabric out flat, right side up. Lay your lace on the edge of the fabric piece, making sure the part of the lace you want to fringe your hand is pointing downward!

    Fold the top of your fabric over, pinning it flush to the other side, making sure to pin your lace in between! You should now have a lace sandwich, with 1.5 inches of lace sticking out both sides.

    Sew two straight lines through the edge of your fabric. Don't forget to backstitch so it won't unravel. Make your stitches about medium length. Make sure also to sew through both layers and the lace layer, fixing it to the fabric securely.

    Tie a knot in each end of your twine to help it not "escape" in case the sewing comes loose. (You don't need to do this if you are using skinny ribbon, as that will just sew right in)
