Burlap Cuff Tutorial

Here is my first burlap project with a tutorial.Easy and quick to make with many possibilities.
Photobucket
You will need:
Photobucket
-a piece of burlap
-color of choice felt
-manilla hemp
-button,charm or bead of choice
-pins and needles
-scissors and thread
-a sewing machine (optional)
Step1.
Photobucket
Measure around your wrist and cut the base of your cuff from the burlap.Don't forget to add an inch at each side.
Step2.
Photobucket
Pin back the sides.
Step3.
Photobucket
Sew around the outer edge.
Step4.
Photobucket
Trace the cuff on the felt.
Step5.
Photobucket
Cut out the back side of the cuff from the felt.I prepared velcro for closure,but you can use buttons or a zipper.
Step6.
Photobucket
Sew on the velcro,but don't sew the felt on the burlap yet.
Step7.
Photobucket
Sew the button on the middle of the cuff.
Step8.
Photobucket
Sew a longer piece of manilla hemp under the button.
Step9.
Photobucket
Start sewing the manilla on the burlap.You can see that I stiched through the manilla,so that the stiches are invisible.But if you think this is too complicated or you'r not patiente enough you can always glue the design on. :)
Step1O.
Photobucket
Sew the felt on the back of the cuff and try it on.
Photobucket
Done! :)
Hope you enjoyed! :)
