I made this DIY glittered wrist cuff from my very own glittered fabric (click here for the tutorial). I cut a swatch for my wrist, sewed on a fabric image of La Virgen and seamed the edges with a tight zigzag stitch.
SUPPLIES for a DIY Glittered Wrist Cuff:
Swatch of canvas fabric that fits around your wrist
White craft glue
Fabric picture, sewing machine
Velcro or elastic and button
Start by painting the cuff in a base coat, then let dry.
Add a coat of white craft glue and pour on the glitter. Pat it into the glue. Let dry.
Spray with the sealer, let dry.
Use a heavy-duty machine needle to sew on the fabric picture.
Add trim if desired.
I added rickrack and stitched on some matching elastic at the end of the bracelet. That big yellow piece is not a button – it is a vintage clip earring. I glued the clasp down and then stitched through the opening. I added a milagro charm too.
I am 100% smitten with this bracelet. So much that I plan to make more of these with all kinds of different images. The glitter is sealed down, but still so sparkly!
