Second - new upcycled idea: cuff bracelets. Here is one I love.
I came across a few petite small (PS) button down shirts that had seen better days at a yard sale a few weeks ago, and I liked the fabric. First thought: flowers! The pastel colors and design of the fabric would make more "shabby chic" flowers than I have made in the past, but I thought that would be pretty. As I was deconstructing the shirts, I noticed the cuffs just laying there. Perfect! Bracelets. So...what do you think?
I left the bodices intact and will make little girls' dresses from them embellished, of course, with contrasting flowers. I am looking forward to getting started on those. The sleeves were made into flowers.
