I loved the cuffs in this months magazine! But of course I didn't have anything remotely ethnic. I made them anyway. I dug into my crazy quilt stash and used green taffeta instead of silk. In step 4 after the fabrics were layered I put a piece of black tulle overit and then did some decrartive stiching and added more fabric and trim. I love it!! Especially the velvet on the back. I still have to download ( or is it upload?) a picture!!
Hi Caren, glad you enjoyed the cuff article and found a way to adapt it to the materials in your stash. I find I can't stop making them at the moment. I love to sought out and mix materials with different texture and have great fun with choosing colours! Hope you decide to upload a photo, so I can download it! Jill :)

I finally have the pictures for the cuffs. It only took 3 months!!! Here they are.
The one in the middle is mine. The 2 smaller ones are my little girls. Chloe is now 7 and Zora is 5 1/2. They love their cuffs! Of COurse they had to be pink!
These are terrific. I know when I saw the images in the magazine I went nuts. They are so wimple yet beautiful. And as we see with yours they will be very unique and we can do whatever we want. I have been hunting for holiday gift ideas that are fast and simple. I think this will definitely be on my "do" list.
What fun to have girls you can make special gifts like these for. I am sure they will be heirlooms.
It was really fun to see your pictures. I am glad you were able to upload them. Some time I will upload some of my art. I think I am going to send in some of my dolls but in the mean time I need to get some wall hangings and pillow covers done.
May the Force os Creativity be with you! (smile)
