.:Tutorial Tuesday–Ruffled Cuff with Styled By Tori:.

** Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Styled by Tori Spelling and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores for a campaign via The Blueprint Social.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Jewelry. You know that I have a fondness for jewelry and jewelry making. For me, for my girls, I’m not really picky. Accessories are just the perfect finishing touches to an outfit, and I’m always looking to expand my collection. Lucky for me, I was able to get a box of goodies of the new Styled By Tori Jewelry line that is available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.

This jewelry  that I got to have fun with is brand new to the collection, so combined with the older collection, you have countless options for creating unique and one of a kind jewelry! And let me tell you, it couldn’t be easier to put together!

I decided to take one of the beautiful pendants that I was sent, and make this fun ruffled cuff.

Let me show you how I made it. Here’s what you’re going to need:

- fabric (I used satin)
- felt
- Styled By Tori pendant
- button
- skinny elastic
- measuring tape
- needle and thread
- sewing machine/accessories

Measure around your wrist to see how long you need your cuff to be. My measurement was about 6.5 inches. Then you need to figure out how wide you want the cuff to be. I did a 3.5 inch width to account for the seam.

Cut two pieces of satin to 7” x 3.5” and one piece of felt to 7” x 3.5”.

Then you need to cut the ruffle strips. I did mine double the length – so 14” by 2”. You’ll see I cut two ruffles, but only ended up using one.

Fold the ruffle strips in half, length wise, and run a gathering stitch along the raw edge.

Lay out one of the satin pieces with the right side facing up.

Place the piece of felt on top of the piece of satin.

Now gather your ruffle strip/s, gather, and begin pinning in place.

I did two satin strips since my satin had the white and I didn’t want the black of the felt to be too strong, but if you don’t need to double it up, skip this step. Place the other satin piece on top, with right side facing down. Pin in place.

Sew around the edge, being sure to catch all of the layers, and leaving a 2” opening.

Trim the edges – don’t cut your seam!

Turn the cuff right side out. Fold the opening in, and pin in place.

Use your seam ripper to make a small hold in the seam at one end of the cuff.

Cut a small piece of elastic, make a loop and insert it into the hold. Fold the ends back in, and pin in place.

Top stitch all the way around. You may want to go back and forth over where the elastic is so that it is in place good!

Hand stitch a button on the other end of the cuff.
