Bow Tie Cuff Bracelet From A Man's Shirt
"This is a super quick and fun upcycle project. I actually challenged myself to upcycle the whole of two of my husband's dress shirts and I ended. up making 18 things! This is by far one of the simplist. A cute 'bow tie' look cuff bracelet that you can make in about 90 seconds! If you want to see the other things I made with my husband's shirts you can click on the blog link. I made a tote bag, teddy bear, kid's apron, key chains, a macrame style wall hanging, a zipper pouch, bookmarks, quilted pot holders and some other jewellery pieces all from 2 shirts! Happy crafting!"
Project TypeMake a Project
Time to CompleteUnder an hour
- Men's Shirt Cuff
- Needle and thread
Cut the cuff off of a man's shirt as neatly as possible.
If needed you can machine sew the edge where you cut to stop it from fraying (but I didn't).
Pinch the cuff at the midway point from the underside and pin.
Hand sew to hold the 'pinched' bow in place.
Use the original cuff button to close around your wrist! That's it!
