Fabric Cuffs-Design Process

Fabric Cuffs: The Design Process


My thought was to keep a journal record of my design idea process. The first step is to look at the fabrics that I intend to use for the cuffs, and any trims.

Once the color-scheme is chosen, then the construction can begin.

No “pattern” was used to create the cuffs.  I had the concept in my head, and worked from that to create the basic cuff.

Then I decided on my embellishments. I kinda got ahead of myself and should have done this before the back and front were sewn together.  But it still worked…

Now it is time to finish.  Instead of an invisible hand-sewn slip-stitch, I chose to top stitch it all together.  An extra decorative touches!


You will soon be able to find these cuffs on my etsy site: GaiasEarthlyDelights
