    Cuff Bracelets

    I am interested in making cuff bracelets for some young teens. Does anyone have any experience with that craft. I have checked the internet and have found limited information. I would appreciate any advice or information concerning my interest.

    Are you wanting to make quilted cuff bracelets? or use fabric in
    general?

    I found this website blog for DIY instructions on making cuff bands.

    Hope this might help you, and I will keep looking if this is what you
    are looking for.

    Hi my name is Polly, and I am the one that posted the wool cuff bracelet I made on my embellisher, and this is one I am going to make today, I think. The wool band was in a book by Vivian Peritts called Felted Wool Fashions. She has some adorable shrugs, scarves, bags, totes and more.

    Those are wonderful!
    I don't wear anything on my wrists anymore except for my
    watch, but THAT has me wanting to rethink that issue.

    Here is another one I just finished for my daughter. The buttons came off a favorite blouse from her teen years. I used velcro to fasten it, the author Vivian Peritts used buttons on both ends. BTW I also lined it with some scrap silk because the wool irritates my skin and I will probably wear it too.

    I typed in cuff bracelets on google and this is what came up. Lots and lots of ideas.
