Project Name: Spare Those Cuffs! (Detention in the Dungeons)
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) So, I landed a job back in November at an assisted living place working in the dining room. Our uniform was to be black pants and white short sleeved shirt. At the time I was living on pennies (well, I still am, just twelve instead of five) so I went to the thrift shop where they had no short sleeved shirts in November. I chose a long sleeved blouse and cut the sleeves off. The cuffs were quite fetching and I did not want to discard them. I made bracelets out of them.
I have been so busy since, and only just now completed this project. I am only showing one, since they look the same.
At first I sewed the sides right up, then tried to fit it over my hand. I mean, I have small wrists, but big hands and I spent a good 5 minutes trying to force them on. Um, how to get them off? Pliers. So I revamped and sewed differently and now I can get them on and off.
Embellished with keys and beads. I like how they came out!
