cuff bracelets

my colleague recently gave me a stash of old textiles swatches: just large enough to recycle into these embellished cuff bracelets. i sewed two rectangles together (the longer side being one inch longer than the circumference of your wrist), leaving one short side open. turn inside out, iron flat and hand sew opening shut. then stitch all around the edges. now comes the fun part: sew on sequins, beads, buttons.... whatever strikes your fancy. i followed the stripes of my textile pattern, but free from is good too. sew two or three snaps on to close.
