Lace Cuffs are rather popular and come in all colors and styles. I needed two in red and black for an upcoming event so off to the sewing room I went.
Here are my supplies. I pulled out some red wool felt for the backing. Some really pretty laces in red and black are my feature materials.
Here are the backs of my completed cuffs. I finished them with a large black snap for fastening.
Here is one with a vintage black button that is very sparkly. I do hope the recipient likes this.
Here is the other lace cuff with a vintage button that has rhinestone bling on it. Another gift all finished and ready for giving. These were quick and simple to create.
The holiday season is in full swing. I am trying to enjoy all the aspects of everything that needs to get done. I managed to avoid all the shopping crush and yet still accomplish some gift acquisitions. I merely put on my giant patience smile and let the days unfold.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the Chamber helping out. Did I have the spare few hours? Not really but I am so glad I made time since I enjoy my "volunteer work" there so very much.
We are having lots of rain. Maybe too much rain in some parts of California however we have such a desperate need for the watertable I am thankful for any rain. Prayers for all those in burn areas experiencing flooding and landslides.
May each of you be enjoying the magic of this wonderful holiday season. I am enjoying your blog posts and seeing everything fabulous in decorations and gifts you are creating. Sharing Joy and Jingles...
