A bit of lace and fabric to adorn my wrist

I've no idea what hit me yesterday but I came down with a cold hard and fast. Aches, fever, chills...the whole shebang! Needless to say I spent most of the day in bed convalescing with lots of hot tea, pain relievers and my favorite heating pad. By noon I was bored and restless and started in on one of my favorite past times...surfing craft blogs (what else?) and got inspired to make a cuff bracelet.

I don't really have a tutorial for you but if you go to Vintiquities Workshop you'll see one along with my inspiration. Once you get going on these, it's hard to stop cause you can just keep adding and layering and embellishing to your hearts content.

I used fabrics I had on hand which included a cloth napkin, gauze lining and, of all things, a cloth diaper! Craze, I know, but it's sturdy and super soft! I added some beads and pieces of a doily and blanket stitched all around the edges. I love it. It probably looks a little bridal but since my husband often refers to me as his beautiful bride....I suppose that's okay. It's definitely girly and feminine and makes me feel a bit like Marie Antoinette. She would have totally been down with this.
