Ruffled Wrist Cuff tutorial



Supplies:
Cotton fabric – 4 different strips
measuring tape
scissors
elastic thread
sewing machine
thread
hand sewing needle
iron (optional)
Step 1 – Measure the circumference of your wrist. Add 2-3″ for your length measurement. Cut a piece of fabric to be 4″ wide with the length measurement you just figured out (mine was 4″x9″).
Step 2 – Fold in half with right sides together, matching up the ends. Sew the ends together using an overlock stitch or your serger.You have now created a loop.
 Fold the edges over 1/4″ and then another 1/4″. Press or pin to keep in place. Sew. Now the edges are finished with no raw edges.

Step 6 – Clip the extra threads and hit the fabric with a shot of HOT steam from an iron to make it bunch up even more (optional).
Step 7 – Take 3 strips of fabric (1 – 2″ wide by 6 – 12″ long) and roll them into rosettes. Use your needle and thread to secure the rosette as your turn and twist the fabric.You can even add buttons or other embellishments.
Step 8 – Handstitch the rosettes in a cluster onto the top of the cuff – and you are DONE!
A great way to add color and texture to your outfit! Create them in another colorways for a different look!
