Upcycled Studded Denim Wrist Cuffs

Upcycled denim wrist cuffs

I was in the mood to do a small upcycle denim project and removed the wrist cuffs from two pairs of discarded jacket sleeves. I had quite a bit of soft animal print fabric left over from a pair of pajama pants, and black lace salvaged from a couple of vintage slips; the animal print wrist cuffs were easy to put together. The blue/purple themed cuffs are fashioned from a lovely old suit jacket and its gorgeous purple buttons.

Small accessories like wrist cuffs are fun, easy to wear and pack a lot of style punch! What do you think of wrist cuffs?
