Marie a la Paysanne Cuff

Let me introduce you to my new addiction: Cuff Bracelets

I made this one for a cuff swap with my Marie Antoinette Group. The theme called for a natural style, like Marie at her Hamlet. I had such a good time making this cuff I am starting another one this week for a very good girly friend of mine.

The large applique flower was originally a stark white. I dyed it soft pink with Sherbert Glimmer Mist.  I hand stitched all the elements onto the cuff.

This is the back, but I suppose it could be reversible if you wanted.  I used some of the buttons from my mom's stash and pieces of a thrift store doily as accents.

I hope you decide to try making a cuff, but reader be warned... a serious addiction may soon follow.  Hi my name is
