Not everything I pin is sewing or craft related. But a patchwork board, a fabric board, and a random inspiration things board are among my many boards. But anyhoo, I digress.....
The first tutorial I tried was from Katie at The Red Kitchen . The cuff in the front to the left is the one I made.
The second cuff I tried came from Melissa at ISLY - I Still Love You
The cuffs on the left here are mine made using the tutorial.
Both tutorials were very quick and easy. I would highly recommend to anyone -even if you are a beginner crafter!
After trying two tutorials I figured I'd have a go at making my own cuff design. It required a little bit more work in that I cut three separate pieces of leather, sewed a couple straight lines and some lace, and added two snaps instead of one. But all in all it is still very simple (if you can sew a straight line and install a snap you can make this one!)

I was pretty pleased with the result! Although I wish I had used some black leather for a bit more contrast next to the lace and would probably add a bit of topstitching at the edges. What do you think?
