Guest Blogger - Just Another Day In Paradise - Washer Felt Cuff

Hi everyone. My name is Larissa and I can normally be
found over at




where I spend time
crafting, cooking, throwing parties, and taking care of my three little men.




Here are three of my posts that you might love to see!



A washer bracelet made with hemp and beads.




Bib necklace from a t-shirt!




Little Man Tie (using velcro - not elastic - complete with tie pattern). This was actually made from a placemat!



I am so happy to be here at Someday Crafts showing all of you a
fun take on the washer jewelry craze
.


Washer Felt Cuff



You will need:


Washers
Spray paint
Diamond Glaze
t-shirt scraps
felt
snaps
coordinating thread
hot glue




First: You will need to spray paint your washer with your chosen color. It will take several coats.




Once your washer is painted and dried, you will apply this--





Slowly outline and then fill in your washer. Make sure to follow the instructions on the Diamond Glaze...allow for proper time to dry...it will take a couple of days.




With your t-shirts scraps, take a strip about 1 inch by 14 and roll into a flower...
here is a tutorial I recently did for this technique.





Now that you have a rolled t-shirt flower, hot glue it onto the center of your washer.




To make the cuff, measure the length you need to go around your wrist. Cut two strips out of felt measuring that length by the width of 1 1/2".




Pin the two pieces together and sew around the outside edge. Then "quilt" it by sewing every 1/4". It will look like this--



To attach the snap, figure out where the closure will need to be.




Mark that spot. Make a small slit with an exacto knife for the snap pieces to go into, and then follow snap instructions.







Once the snap is in place, hot glue your washer onto the felt cuff.



Now you have a great and original piece of cuff jewelry. So easy to make and so cute.




I'd love for you to come visit my blog, Just Another Day In Paradise!!!!
