Beaded Cuff Sleeves too long? Here’s a Sass a Craft original tip…

Materials:

  • seed beads (or buttons if you prefer)
  • needle
  • thread
  • scissors
  • iron
  • marker

Whomever the shirt was purchased for should wear it during the fitting process for accuracy.

Fold the cuff upwards (the stitching should be visible). Make sure the hem rests slightly below the wrist bone.

*Mark the area where the edge of the cuff lies as a reference point.* 

Fold the edge of the cuff back down so that it meets the (first) hem. Mark with a pen if need be. The underside stitching should not be visible at this point.

Remove shirt from subject. Refold if need be, iron cuffs down.

Make sure that your needle is not too large to slide through your seed beads (they come in various sizes).

Have a pattern in mind (zig-zag, straight across, loops, etc). Make sure that you have enough beads to complete the pattern.

Thread your needle and go!

*Do not unfold the cuffs while beading. The whole point is to secure the cuffs in place with the beads.*

Have fun!
