something new is coming this way…

I’m also trying to think of a Merry & Bright give-a-way for the debut…in fact, I’m going to slip down right now to my happy sewing place and create something.

a clever cuff

Is it OK that I at times feel clever?

I tend to have a lot [piles] of these ruffles ‘laying around’ and as I was looking at them yesterday morning I decided to try to create a cuff with them.

With the ruffles already made, I sewed the layers together added a piece of jewelry and it literally just took minutes.  It comes together with a tied bow, which is not very convenient but I do like the look of it…for now anyway.

I’ll have to try to find a better option for that…maybe a small piece of pretty elastic…is there such a thing as pretty elastic?…guess I’ll add that to my fancy clip~board shopping list for the city.

I’m wearing this sweet cuff right now {as I am decorating my house for Christmas and listening to a wonderful Pandora Christmas mix} and I love how pretty and feminine it is with a touch of vintage tatted lace and rhinestone jewelry.
