Monogrammed ruffly cuff tutorial

I made these little cuffs for my girls on Valentine's
day. They really have enjoyed them so I thought
I'd share how I made them. They're super simple
and use very little fabric. My tutorial is basically the
pictures so if you have a problem with anything just ask!
I wanted to leave my edges raw so that it would look a
little shabby.....because that's what I am!

What you'll need for this project:

* Some scraps of cute fabric
* elastic
* a pack of covered buttons (this includes the tools to set them)

Here's a fun tip: To make the edges of your ruffle strip really
shabby, measure an inch wide then snip with your scissors and
rip. If you have good fabric this should deliver a perfect inch
wide strip. It's true!!

Okay, follow the instructions on the package of your
covered button kit and make some cute buttons. I love
love love, fabric covered buttons now!

Whoops! I meant an outline stitch. I will never proclaim to
be an embroiderer! Here's a little how to or, you can fake it!

And there you have it! A pretty little thing for your pretty
little thing. Have fun and enjoy!
