Here's the basics for what you need:
1. Water soluble stabilizer. The thin plastic kind not the thick paper kind. Tried it and it was a nightmare to get out.
2. Scrap Fabric or yarn
3. Sewing machine. If you can do this without one you are amazing.
4. Buttons.
5. Elastic cording.
6. A measurement guide. I took a piece of black cardstock and cut it to the length and width I like.

Now The directions:
1. Get the wrist measurement guide ready and cut a piece of the stabilizer 2.5X the width and 1 inch longer for the length.
2. Add your scraps to the center.

3. Now pin it together. Get it good and secure.

4. Now start the sewing. I usually go around the sides first then remove the needles.

5. Sew all around the cuff so you get everyhing secured into place and it looks purty.

6. Now that everything is secure. Take the cuff and run it under HOT water.
7. After a few seconds all the stabilizer should be gone and you should have this.

8. To trim or not to trim. That is up to you.

9. Then add buttons and elastic.
Viola. A great way to recycle scraps.

10 If you want to secure it a different way. Make the cuff longer then make a button hole or add snaps.
The one on the bottom has the buttonhole.
