Creative Guest: Vintage Lace Cuff by I {Heart} Naptime

Hi friends!

I’m Jamielyn from I {Heart} Naptime and I’m SO excited to be guest posting here today! U-Create was one of the first blogs I started following and I completely adore Kari and her blog. I feel completely honored to be here today to share a fun tutorial with you!

A little bit about me:

I’m married to my best friend and a mother of two beautiful children (Carson age 2 and Emmalyn 7 months). They keep me pretty busy  (see for yourself) but all the snuggles and kisses make it SO worth it! My family is THE most important to me and always comes first.

I started my blog as a creative outlet in a little bliss during my day called nap time and it has evolved into so much more. On my blog you can find DIY Projects, Crafts, Recipes and lots more! I. LOVE. my sanity Nap time. i love creating. I love thrifting and thinking of all the possibilities that can be, from an old treasure. I’m all about decorating on a budget. I love to bake… and eat lots of cookies. I am learning to sew, and enjoying the process. I love trying new things, and I’m not afraid of messing up the first (or second) time around.


Today I’m going to show you how to make one of these fun vintage lace cuffs. They are super cute and super easy to make. I promise you’ll get tons of compliments out on your hot date! Let's get started shall we?

Supplies Needed:

  • Stretchy Lace (Found at HL or Jo-Ann’s)

  • felt

  • 1 pearl

  • satin, or scrap fabric

  • tulle

  • hot glue

STEP 1:

  • Cut lace to desired length. I measured around my wrist and 5 1/2 in. was perfect.

  • Then cut lace to desired width. The lace was a little wide for my taste, so I trimmed it down to 2 in. following the same scalloped pattern for the edge.


    STEP 2:
  • Cut (6) 1 1/2 in circles for the flower and (1) 1 1/2 in circle for the base. I used satin fabric for the circles.
STEP 3 (Making the flower):
  • Fold circle in half. Place a little dab of glue in right corner and fold corner so it's meeting in the middle.

    Flip circle over and then add a little glue to the right corner and fold in to create a slice of pie!
    Repeat 6 times!

STEP 4:

  • Glue the 6 pieces onto the “base” circle creating a whole (yummy FRESH strawberry) pie! Mmm PIE!
STEP 5:
  • Add pearl to center of the flower and a little tulle underneath if desired.

  • Glue lace to felt piece and then hot glue the flower down covering the seam.

  •  Now Enjoy your fun new vintage lace cuff!
