Ultrasuede metal cuff

Dress up a simple metal cuff bracelet by glueing fabric or flexible wood veneers to the surface

I love pairing antique copper with olive, but this design works just as well with olive and antique silver. The cuff also comes in antique gold, so pick your favorite solid or patterned Ultrasuede and make it your own. You can’t go wrong with this textural mix of smooth metal, soft fabric, and sparkly crystal.

INSTRUCTIONS

Ultrasuede metal cuff 1
Step 1
Measure the width of a cuff (don’t include the raised edges). Measure the cuff’s length and add 1⁄2 in. (1.3 cm). Mark the measurements on the back of a piece of Ultrasuede. Using scissors, cut the fabric as marked.

Apply craft glue to the back of the fabric. Center the fabric on the cuff and press to adhere; the ends will extend beyond the cuff. Allow to dry. Using scissors, trim the ends along the curve of the cuff.

Tip!

Fit & trim

Cut the fabric a bit longer than the cuff, then trim it with scissors after you glue it in place.
