Soft and Vintage Cuff Bracelet

I was catching up on my blog reading this weekend, when a beautiful creation on one led me to the blog of Natasha Burns. She took my breath away with her beautiful sewn cuff bracelets. I had to have one. Of course, it would be more than fabulous to have one of her creations, but I'd have to settle for one of mine. I got started going through my stash of supplies.

Vintage blue velvet ribbon - check.
Vintage lace to cover the ribbon - check.
Vintage flowers to sew onto the bracelet - check.
Vintage fabric to cut up and sew onto the bracelet - check.
Beads, buttons, snaps, jewelry, bits and bobs to add to the creation - check.

I sat on my living floor while my husband watched Valkyrie and started stitching up this little beauty. I DON'T SEW. But, I was determined to get my very own Natasha Burns look-alike. It took me two evenings, but I finally have one! Here are the pics of my creation.




Check out Natasha's blog to see what she created. Be careful, you'll find yourself getting wrapped up in her beautiful creations and not want to leave!

(Don't forget - you have until the end of today to enter my prize drawing. See the post below and leave a comment there.)

Erica, you have created a Natasha Burns fan--her artwork is be-yoooti-ful (have my eye on a set of her postcards on Etsy thanks to you).

The bracelet is amazing...it would be perfect on the bride in a barefoot beach wedding.

Gorgeous work as usual!
