Custom Order Completed

Here is my most recent creation, a custom cuff for a male co-worker.

This layered fabric cuff includes a red and black print cotton fabric, 
cotton batting (doubled) and a layer of recycled jean fabric as the lining. 

I sketched the Tribal style design and then free motion stitched it with heavy cotton thread.  
A random zig zaggy free motion filler around the main parts of the design 
make it puff out like trapunto. 

I then painted the raised areas with black lumiere fabric paints, 
heat set with an iron and it was ready to create the clasp. 
I was so fortunate to find this really unique metal piece 
on a pair jeans I purchased a long time ago. 

It helped to complete the tribal look and gives the cuff a fabulous focal point. 
If you are interested in a unique custom piece for yourself 
or someone you care about
contact me.  
I really enjoy the challenge of creating custom orders. 
 All for now, Happy Weekend Creating!!
