Shabby Chic Lace Cuff/Bracelet!

Hola and Happy Monday!!

I have a Wild Orchid Crafts project to share today.
Our Wild Orchid Craft DT challenge for the month is to highlight our laces!
 Now I know you all love those as do I! Seriously, these last releases were some of the most gorgeous I've seen WOC carry!!! Oh, lovely!

So, as mentioned in my last DT challenge video HERE, I thought about making some bracelet/cuffs after I made that bookmark! And I LOVED how these look, I even wore one of them on at my hubby's graduation day...just that when we took pics I had it behind him on my left wrist! oy....I can't believe I forgot to stand on the other side or put it on my right wrist! Anyhow, here those are...
then my video tutorial to follow!! :)

These are super pretty and I loved them so much I actually wore one and didn't think I would! I wanted to make sure to make them so that they can be washed, just in case something spilled on them:) If you're like me you probably get your sleeves dipped in some BBQ sauce after reaching for a roll at the center of the table or something right? Yeah, I do! Anyhow, this is why there are no paper flowers or paper leaves, no metal....and no glues that can dissolve or jeopardize the integrity of the it's all stitched!

Here's the video tutorial of both cuffs! ...and of course, you know you
don't have to follow mine to a "T" right? Make these your own! Use other laces and add pearls in all sizes, use different centers or make other types of flowers for them! Endless possibilities with this for sure!!
