  1. Oh that is very exciting Shelley! I will have to consider this one pretty hard. Your blog is doing so well! Good for you!!!

  2. What a great idea. I need to see if I will be able to participate. It might be good therapy to work on this while I'm sitting in waiting rooms... HUGS! Charlene

  3. What a great idea, Shelley. I will be a happy admirer!

  4. Ohhhh, this sounds enticing . . . . I've never made one. I'm tempted to join in . . . . .


  5. THOSE are gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMGosh!

  6. That looks like a blast. We are getting ready to make patterns for the creative connection show. It is busy here at Hutch. It looks like you are having a blast. Love the glasses.

  7. My plan is to bring patterns and ideas. There will be the owls and other things too. But, my main focus is to bring patterns. My goal is to publish a craft book of all our ideas. We are so busy it is crazy. Saturday we are going to tape Chris teaching a whirligig class. We are having way to much fun.

  8. Hi Shelley,
    I would so want to do this but I don't know how to even make a cuff. HaHa! If I sign up will the tutorial take a novice like me to the level of these? If so, I am in!

  9. Ohhh yes I am IN !!! I have alll the bits and bobs and even have a vision forming in my lil brain ...


  10. hey, I didn't know anything about the minnesota thing, this fashion week has got me completely oblivious! you can add me on facebook or give me your email so we can chat :)
    by the way, I love cuffs. I've made quite a few that I used to sell in my deciduous soul shop. You can look through my sold orders and see the 'pride and prejudice' one and the 'southern charm' one, they were my faves!
    I just put a big button on one end before I sewed the underlining on, and a small elastic pony tail at the other end, and that way they were adjustable. I'd really love to do the swap!
    talk to you soon :)

  11. I'm in! I posted about it on my blog too!

  12. A cuff swap sounds fun! Count me in! *HUGS* Heidi

  13. I read about this on Marsha's (Sassy Mini Dolls) blog post. I will have to look at the tutorial and decide then if I feel I could do anything anyone else would want :-) It does sound like fun though.

  14. Oh please add me if you have room!! I added it to my blog sidebar as well!

  15. I would love to be a part of this fun swap. I have never made a cuff bracelet but, I am game! Count me in.. :)
