Reclaimed Sari Ribbon Denim Cuff

This was new territory for me all around.  No needles, all knots, recycled ribbon, recycled denim belt, recycled button, metal beads.  I wanted to make this with nothing but my hands as tools.  I almost achieved that goal.  I only used a seam ripper and scissors.








This Reclaimed Sari Ribbon was given to me by Nicole of Darn Good Yarn.  I am using it in a series of Monday Posts.  The First Three posts can be found #1Here, #2Here, and  #3Here.
The more I use the ribbon, the more I see different ways I can use it.  And it just feels so darn good in my hands :-)  It is going to makes its way into at least one upcoming Hop...cannot wait to show those pieces!  Thus far, I have managed to not use any rocks with the ribbon!  So much Growth ;-)

Thanks Nicole!

I love this cuff, Christine! Sari ribbon is great stuff, isn't it? Love the denim with the silk.

Gorgeous vintage shades. Looks like it would feel so soft and well-worn on your wrist, just like your favorite jeans! Great design, and there are SO many ways you could customize it.

This is gorgeous -- so casual and effortless, and the corset-like stitching adds that touch of sexy ;)

I love this Christine! I can't believe there was no sewing required. One of your rocks would look so cool against the denim too.

Pretty combination of ribbon, denim, and that big button and metals. Makes me think of putting on an old 70's record and sitting in the sun.
