How To Make a Wrist Cuff - faux wood & embroidered.

  1. 1. How to: <ul><li>faux wood embroidered cuff </li></ul><ul><li>kootoyoo…click & stitch </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Embroidery floss, scrap of flooring vinyl, tiny nails, needle, press studs, some scrap paper & thimble. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Step 2: <ul><li>Cut a piece of scrap paper the same size as you want your finished cuff to be. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Step 3: <ul><li>Position the template onto your vinyl. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Step 4: <ul><li>Cut to size allowing a little extra “seam allowance” around the template piece. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Step 5: <ul><li>Draw your design onto the paper. You could use text or graphics or something random as I have. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s important that your design doesn’t occupy the whole of the cuff space. </li></ul><ul><li>You should also be aware that you don’t want to have too many lines in your design as each stitch will weaken the vinyl. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Step 6: <ul><li>Tape your design onto your vinyl cuff. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Step 7: <ul><li>Now it’s time to get to work with your nail & your thimble. </li></ul><ul><li>Some vinyls can be stitched straight through but creating this “lacing card style” pattern just makes everything much easier & certainly reduces the number of tangles. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Step 8: <ul><li>Begin by inserting the nail at the junctions of your lines. </li></ul><ul><li>The nail should slide fairly easily through the vinyl. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Step 9: <ul><li>This is what your design should look like once you’ve made your intersecting holes. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Step 10: <ul><li>Now go back & fill in the gaps. Just use your eye. This isn’t time for your fanciest embroidery. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Step 12: <ul><li>Remove your paper design from your cuff. </li></ul><ul><li>See all those little holes? That’s your dot-to-dot. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Step 11: <ul><li>Now thread your needle with your chosen floss. </li></ul><ul><li>Use all six strands. This fills up the holes nicely. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Step 14: <ul><li>Begin stitching. You can use a backstitch as I have or another outline stitch of your choosing. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Step 15: <ul><li>It’s a good idea to tape the original design to the top of the cuff so that you’ve got something to follow… all those pin holes get pretty confusing. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Step 16: <ul><li>Once you’ve completed your outline you need to decide which shapes you want to fill. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Step 17: <ul><li>Then knock yourself out colouring with floss. </li></ul><ul><li>Texture & colour are things to consider here. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Step 18: <ul><li>Once you’ve finished all your stitching you need to attach your press studs at either end of the cuff. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Step 19: <ul><li>If you’d like to “shape” your cuff now is the time to do that. </li></ul><ul><li>I just loosely followed the line of the embroidered design. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Step 20: <ul><li>Your finished piece should look something like this. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Finished <ul><li>Wear it with pride. </li></ul>© copyright 2010 www.kootoyoo.com
