Sofiona Designs always lives up to bringing new exciting patterns, at least that is what I think. Also this time they deliver, they designed a bracelet that is quick and so much fun to sew and great as a present (think Christmas gifts). The best part about it all is that you can get the Snowshoe Cuff for free if you sign up for the newsletter. You can do that with the black box on the right side on their website!
I just love this Snowshoe cuff because the design is so clever, it is a quick sew and it is perfect as a gift. You actually don’t need a sewing machine (unless you using fabric that frays, you might want to consider sewing the edges). You need a rotary cutter, some snaps and scraps. That is another part that I like, you can use all those small leftovers. The pattern is designed for heavier non fray fabrics, such as (faux) leather, cork, suede, scuba. Already during testing many different fabrics were used.
I used softshell leftovers for the two cuffs that I made. Our youngest fits the smallest size (size 2) and our 6 year old wears size 4. My wrist even fits in the chart. It is a great small gift for boys and girls and even grown-ups. You can make these bracelets that fit all your outfits.
The pattern has two options, the three strand braid, but also a nine strand braid is possible. Both have a different look. Are you interested? Subscribe for the newsletter and you will get the pattern for free!
