Today it's all about those cute leather cuffs. We're going to play with a small strip of recycled leather and within an hour it will be transformed into a stylish, eco-friendly leather cuff. The best part? It can be made for a few dollars or less. Let's get started.
What You'll Need:
recycled piece of leather (think old handbag, belt, etc.)
strong twine or thread (I used waxed linen)
hammer and awl or nail
sewing machine with a heavy duty needle (denim or leather weight)
What You'll Do:
Be sure to check your own closet first!
Measure: a comfy size to go around your wrist plus about 2" (for overlap)
On the right: an example of another cuff I've put together (note...this is addictive)
use a drill, as I did.
Slow and steady wins the race here. You'll want to sew very slowly.
