After I tweaked my blue cuff/bracelet yesterday, by making a button hole and removing the press stud I felt happy that it would be more secure on the wrist.
I loved the blue Ocean cuff, and went through my felt pieces, finding a lovely rich green piece with silk tops and some dimensional wool in the fabric. The section I cut for the cuff had some leaf-shapes already removed and it all reminded me of a rainforest.
Using some multi-shaded green cotton I blanket-stitched around the holes and the button hole, and added some little french knots in groups of three. It still needed something, so I added little green glass beads, also in threes and a tad more blanket stitch around some of the edge to give definition to the shape. Finally I was pleased!
The button I used is a mother of pearl base with a multi-green oval glass bead on top. Coooool!
Here are a couple of pics of the finished Rainforest cuff, including the revamped Ocean cuff.
Tip: If you cut out a piece of felt and don’t like the rough raw edge, but don’t want to wet-felt the edge and dry it, you can always needle-felt the edge from the right side, and eventually, it felts together giving a nicer, more finished look and feel.
