  • Serger - optional
  • Iron & pressing surface

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Trim away one selvedge edge then cut a 16" wide strip by 72" strip along the length of the piece at the trimmed edge. With right sides together, fold the scarf in half with long sides together.  Serge or sew the fabric together along the non-folded edge, to create a tube of fabric.

Cuff Bracelet

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 1 Black Felt Square
  • Dritz® Sewing Notions:
  • 1 Heavy Duty Snap Fastener
  • Heavy Duty Snap Tool
  • Hand sewing needle
  • Dritz® Assorted Belle Buttons
  • Dritz® Spray Temporary Adhesive
  • Black thread
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Provided pattern template

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Trace cuff pattern onto folded 8-1/2” x 11” paper. Cut out shape and unfold.
  2. Cut 2 pieces of felt 2” x 9”. Spray the back of one piece with adhesive. Place the sprayed strip, glued side down on remaining strip. Pin pattern to strip. Cut one double-layer cuff. 
  3. Machine stitch around cuff about 1/4” from the edge to reinforce felt.  Repeat with another row of stitching 1/4” inside the first row to create concentric rows.
  4. Set machine to zigzag stitch with a width of 4 and length of 2.5. Zigzag edge of cuff so needle swings off and on the edge of the felt to finish.
  5. Mark the snap position onto the cuff with straight pins. Test fit the cuff.  The slightly curved center should point toward your fingers. Adjust the position of the snaps to tighten or loosen the fit. Apply snaps following package directions.
  6. Buttons are layered and are meant to overlap. Sew on buttons starting with those on the bottom layer. To sew buttons, thread needle with a double strand of thread. Fold double again and knot to create 4 threads. Take 2-3 stitches per button.  Always knot the ends. The extra thread strands allow you to take fewer stitches and still have a strongly attached button.
  7. Continue to sew on the overlapping buttons until the center of the cuff is covered with buttons as pictured.

 

Snap Belt

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Dritz® sewing notions: 8 pkgs 30mm antique brass snaps*
  • Hook & eye closures
  • 1 hank 1/8" braided black elastic
  • Scissors
  • Optional: straight pin to aid in threading

 

DIRECTIONS:

*NOTE: The actual quantity of snaps will vary due to hip size. Eight packages of snaps will fit a hip size of 36"-40". Always use an odd number of snap parts so that the snap section on each end matches.

  1. Line up snaps on work surface face up, alternating top/bottom, top/bottom.
  2. Unwind the full hank of elastic. Find the middle point. Clip the ends at an angle for easy threading. Re-clip the ends as needed.
  3. Thread one end of elastic through the first snap piece, top to bottom. Pass the elastic across the underside of the snap to the hole opposite the first threading point. Repeat this with the second elastic end to create parallel rows of elastic. Pull the elastic so the middle point pulls snugly to the snap. Elastic ends should exit out the top of the snap. Make sure elastic is flat and not twisted while threading.
  4. Repeat Step 3 with the next snap piece. Examine the snap sections with the curved center wires. Plan snap placement so this wire position is consistent on each snap.
  5. Continue to repeat step 3, alternating top and bottom snaps, until most snaps are used. Pull elastic snug so snaps touch, but remain flat. Fit the belt. Add or subtract snaps as needed. End the belt with the same style snap section as the beginning snap. Do not trim excess elastic at this time.
  6. Cut 8" of elastic from one loose end of the belt elastic. Trim ends at an angle.
  7. EYE: Place the eye against the underside of the beginning snap so the large opening extends away from the belt. Line up the loop holes with the snap holes. Thread one end of the 8" elastic through one small loop and up through the originally threaded hole of the snap. Use a straight pin to push aside the existing elastic if needed for space. Repeat with the opposite end of the 8" elastic, threading it through the adjacent already-threaded hole, exiting through the top of the snap. Continue elastic over and down through adjacent hole.
  8. Repeat Step 7 for the remaining 8" elastic end. Continue one end over and under so both elastic ends extend to underside of snap.
  9. Pull elastic tightly and tie into a tight double knot. Clip ends close to knot.
  10. HOOK: Place the hook against the top of the ending snap, extending away from the belt. Hook should face down. Line up loop holes with the end holes in the snap. Elastic ends should still be protruding from the top of the end snap.
  11. Thread one elastic end up through one small loop of the hook, across and down through the other loop, and through the adjacent snap hole to the underside.
  12. Repeat Step 11 with the remaining elastic end, going the opposite direction across the hook. Continue threading this elastic end around the snap through already-threaded snap holes so both ends extend to the underside of the snap. Pull tightly, knot and clip as in Step 9.
