Herald the season of flowers by stitching your own embroidered wrap cuff! Embroider a simple tapered rectangle with your favorite combination of stitches - I've got a list of resources at the bottom! My favorite is the lazy daisy stitch and French knots.
You will need:
- Jersey fabric (you can use an old T-shirt or a length of actual fabric)
- Embroidery thread in various colors
- Embroidery needle
To begin, cut a tapered length of fabric. Mine measured about 21" long and 2.75" wide at its widest point. This allowed it to wrap a few times around my wrist while leaving enough length to tie in a secure knot.
Begin embroidering! I used a combination of lazy daisy stitches and French knots mostly, in a rainbow of colors. Here's an easy chart you can follow (source: Pinterest - not my image).
What gorgeous boho accessory for spring! Try choosing a specific color palette - shades of blue or red, or neutrals! This would be gorgeous made with a gray piece of fabric, or even white. You could make lots of these to give away.
