Crafting



I love, love to reuse, remake, and recreate pieces. Be it jewelry, clothing, or accessories--it's all splendid! During the delightfully unexpected snow break, I made my new favorite thing to wear....a button cuff bracelet!! Here's the scoop on the creation:

This is the cuff from a jean jacket I have. I wanted it to be 3/4 length sleeves so I cut this off and saved it for  a special project.


Next, pin or lay out the buttons where you want them. If your heart is set on keeping the buttons where you first pinned them, take a picture of it before you start sewing. Then you can reference it in the midst of sewing.



And here is the finished product:

Tada! I'll show better pictures of it later, but this works for now.

 I sewed two large snaps on the back to hold it together by the way. I've worn it three times and had many compliments on it. I'm stoked about the turn out.

Later, lovelies
