This is one of my favorites of the entire collection. I don't know if its because of the robin's egg blue or just the way the pearls look next to it. Its amazing what you can find at the craft store. This pearl trim came just like this - a strand of connected half-pearls. Easily and quickly stitch the strand on to some 100% wool felt and you're done. The bracelet closes with a sweet little pearl button and shoe string elastic in the back. Okay so its not exactly a cuff - really more of a wrap - but on your wrist it looks like a cuff.

100% wool felt
DMC 25 embroidery floss
Flat pearl trim
Time: 30 minutes
I like to sew on the trim first and then measure the wrist later. So cut the trim 12" in length, as well. Take two strands of your 6-stranded embroidery floss to sew this on.
Sew the trim to the felt, keeping the string of pearls oriented in the middle of the strip. Sew once over the bottom connecting strand, and then the top connecting strand. Repeat for each following pearl.
Let the strip of felt fall as you go so that the trim curves as it will around the wrist.
Sew entire piece of trim to felt and finish off the thread.
See how nicely the attachment is hidden. See me get giddy pleasure out of it looking so nicely done.
