Shabby French Ruffle Cuff/Headband

I made it through to the next round of One Month to Win It, probably by the skin of my teeth!  Here is my project submission.  Did you guess which one was mine?

I was so excited about this week's theme, cause let me tell ya, I love me some Graphics Fairy!  The biggest challenge was narrowing down which graphics to use.

I settled on some sheet music and a fleur-de-lis and got to work on my Shabby French Ruffle Cuff!


First, I printed the graphics directly onto fabric using the freezer paper technique from The Scrap Shoppe.  This was seriously SO easy!  If you have an inkjet printer and didn't know you could print on fabric, head on over and let Michele tell you how it's done.  I feel like I've been missing out!

Then I cut a strip of sheet music from the fabric and ruffled it up with my trusty sewing machine and added some lace & trim.  To make the flower embellishment, I used the fleur-de-lis to cover a button and hot glued a bit of lace to the back.  I cut out a couple flowers and inked the edges, then stacked it all up and stitched it to the cuff.  I then added a length of black satin ribbon to each end and covered the back with a bit of black felt to finish it up!  All done! :)


BUT WAIT!  You didn't think that was all, did ya?  This Shabby French Ruffle Cuff lives a secret double life as a Shabby French Ruffle HEADBAND!  Just tie it around your head and you've got an accessory that pulls her own weight!


So there you have it!  A Shabby French Ruffle Cuff/Headband!  Do you have any accessories that pull double duty?

Linking up to these fun parties!
