How to make a Scrappy Gypsy Cuff--Tutorial!

This week is refurbished shirt week!  Today I'll be showing you how to create a boho gypsy cuff. You can create so many things with old shirts, especially one that your guy has outgrown. I picked up a purple plaid button down from my Goodwill, but any old button down you have laying around will do just as well, as long as it has a button cuff on the sleeve. 

The idea is simple: 

Just CUT the cuffs off your shirt, leaving about 2 inches of the sleeve attached.
ARRANGE lace, scraps, or even beads or feathers on the cuff
SEW everything on. Remember, this is a scrappy cuff. Your sewing doesn't have to be neat! 
WEAR your wonderful new, handmade design! 
(And tell all your friends!)
I'd love to see the cuffs you guy make! Leave me some link love if you try this out. I'm sure this idea has been used before, its so easy and fun!

Stay tuned for thursday, where I'll show you how to create a boho scrappy skirt with the remainder of your shirt!
