There are a few of us who are hoping to start a cuff bracelet swap:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374651.0

I wanted to give it a try before participating in a cuff swap, so here is my first effort:







There are so many different sizes and styles that you could use when making a cuff; this one suits my tastes, but there are a ton of possibilities for customizing to suit every taste.  I made this one just 1 3/4" wide, on soft canvas, using quiet colors.  I stamped the word "happy", and randomly sewed on beads, charms, shells, braid, fabric hearts, and even pinned on a couple of safety pins.  It closes with an elastic loop over a button.  I left the edges raw and unfinished.  I like the result!

Oooh, that's pretty!  Thanks for sharing.  I've been watching the swap but wasn't really sure whether my attempts would be up to the mark. It's helpful to see other people's ideas.  Smiley

those are beautiful!  Mind if I ask how you stop the fabric from fraying?  I love the edge and thought that a line of fray-check might do the work but I haven't tried it out yet.

Actually, I haven't done anything to stop the edges from fraying, but fray-check sounds like a good idea! One thing that will keep it from fraying much more, though, is the stitching holding the backing in place.

I hadn't thought of the stitching to hold the backing!  Yes, that would stop the fraying.  Thanks for the tip!
