I almost never do challenges. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever done a challenge at a website before, but I couldn’t resist this months call-out at Haunted Design House.
They asked for an item that either took just one day to make, or involved words. I can never be counted on to finish a thing in one day, so I went for the inclusion of words. Here is my Beautiful Death Cuff.
I’m a terrible tailor, but I still had fun sewing this together, adding a little bead embroidery and a shabby flower, and making some charms.
I made sure the backs of the charms were pretty, as they move around during wear. How do I know? Because as soon as it was finished, I couldn’t resist wearing it to the movies. It is felt lined and very comfy.
It has its flaws–the button holes are a mess–but overall, I love this thing, and I’ll probably wear it often.
