Ribbons & Lace, Wrist Cuff Extravaganza

I have designated this week to be the week of the Ribbons & Lace Wrist Cuffs. I keep finding more and more fabrics and lacy stuff out there in the yard sale circuit and I want to play with it.

Selected a group of cotton fabrics and cut pieces 2" wide with lengths between 7 1/2" and 9" (the cuffs come out about 1 1/4" smaller) as I like the end pieces to be a variety of sizes ... as one size certainly does not fit all. Brought in the felt container and selected several shades, which were then cut to match up with the cotton fabrics.

Brought in the ribbons/lace container and started routing through, matching up, etc. etc. Finished 3 cuffs and have 2 more in progress. Tomorrow I'm going to concentrate on layers.
