Day 13: Beaded Cuff

Looks like I'm on a bit of a beaded kick this week! I started making these cuffs for sale after I was deluged with a mass of donated beads, both new and vintage. The fabric is repurposed from a man's old suit jacket. Year's ago my Aunt Cyndi, a seamstress, gifted me a large box of her remnants for my birthday! It was a treasure trove of tapestry, linen, canvas, upholstery and other various kinds of wonders that I still use to this day. My assignment to you, embellish something with beads or buttons--perhaps an old cardigan, or a pair of shoes or head scarf...then of course show me! I heart new inspiration.
