Handstitched fabric patchwork cuff

I wanted to make a cuff bracelet for myself from fabric scraps. I started with some Pinsperation (check it out for lots of gorgeous examples and handy tips!).
I tried some different things along the way but my final version is this fully hand-stitched, patchworked felt-lined cuff with vintage buttons. The base is made of reclaimed fabric and the rest is made of leftover scraps and fabrics from swaps.
It's really comfortable to wear :)

Ik wilde eens voor mezelf een cuff-armband maken van restjes stof. Eerst deed ik wat Pinsperatie op (neem een kijkje voor veel prachtige voorbeelden en handige tips!).
Ik probeerde een aantal verschillende dingetjes maar uiteindelijk werd het dit: een volledig handgenaaide patchwork vilt-gevoerde cuff met vinage knoopjes. De basis is gemaakt van gerecyclede stof en de rest is van stofrestjes en stofjes van swaps. 
Hij draagt heerlijk :)
