Romantic cuff

You are looking at my new romantic cuff.

I have had this left over cuff from this project and I saved it just for something like this. I am happy how it turned out and I know it'll be my favourite!

This is how I made it:

A cuff from an old shirt whose colors I didn't like so

I took a plain white cotton, marked it

and covered the cuff . Before stitching I inserted a lace in between the layers.

I sandwiched that lace.

And top stitched all over it.

Then I added a lace ribbon over it.

I sewed a white elastic on one end.

I covered a button with the same lace and put it on the other end.

Then I made a flower by combining the two fabrics.

Here it is finished! Isn't it cute?
