Inspired by Lisa's tower of cuffs, I decided I wanted to try my hand at making one of these fun little projects. So I did.
I had some scrap fabric - perfect for this project - and a bit of green silk that was perfect for visual and textural interest on the top. I just used tiny ricrac for the button loops.

This project is a great way to use a few lovely buttons from the collection. Thanks for the inspiration, Lisa!

I think your cuffs look lovely. Makes me wish I had a sewing machine to give one a go.
