Scrap Crafty~ Tie wrist cuff

I'm even working the scraps of scraps into something! It's a matching wrist cuff to the choker!


I used the wider end of the left over tie from the choker deal to make this wrist cuff. Seriously easy construction: wrap end of tie around wrist, measure, cut, stitch up raw end, mark/cut button hole, sew on button and finish off rough edges of hole! Done! This project only took about 15 minutes and that was because I had a little one to keep busy in the process.
I still have enough of the tie left to make my friend a chocker as well! 3 accessories out of 1 tie that cost me a buck! I think that is just about as thrifty as it gets!

I think you need to get your own tv show. You have such a unique, great look, and you are so crafty and cute. You could have the 50's housewife version of Martha's show. I seriously think it is kitchy enough, and you are crafty enough to be succesful. Have you ever thought about it?
