Hi everyone!!

I made this cuff from the top shoulder strap thingies on a mens dress shirt. I cut off both of them from the shoulders, zig-zag stitched them together at opposite ends, measured it to fit my wrist and then cut off the excess. I zig-zag stitched over the end of the cuff, added a button and added some random stitching detail. Et voila!




Do you think I should remove the detail stitching and try again with another type of stitch or leave it?
Any comments welcome Smiley

I like the decorative stitching - gives it that little somethin' somethin'.  That's cute and vintagey.  I'd wear it!  Looks good with your tattoo, too.
