Keepin’ It Super Simple!

Monday mornings are crazy time in my house!  Everyone is in slow motion and I am itching to get to work!  These are the days that I need to get my super hero groove on.  (sorry, but as a child I always loved Wonder Woman.  I mean come on, those cuffs, they could stop bullets!)

This project is for all levels.

Skill Level- 1 Button

Materials:
  • 2 different colors of felt
  • hook and loop tape
Basic Instructions:
  1. Measure your child’s wrist with a tape measure.  Make sure it’s comfortable and not too tight.  Then add 2 1/2″ for overlap.  This measurement x 2.5″ wide will be your cuff pattern.
  2. Cut 4 pieces of the same color felt to your pattern.   Now pick your cuff design.  For this “how to” I am using the heart.  Cut 2 in your complementary color.  Cutting counts here.  If you have a rotary cutter, this will go very quick and you will have a smooth line.
  3. Position your shape on the center of the cuff.  Stitch all around to secure.  Repeat to other cuff.
  4. With wrong sides together, match the top and bottom of your cuff; straight stitch all around edge.  Note that I used a contrast color thread for detail.
  5. Cut your hook and loop tape 2″ long.  Center the “loop” side of tape 1/4″ from the edge on face of cuff.  Stitch all around.  Then repeat on the other end on the wrong side of cuff.  Repeat to other cuff.
  6. Wrap around wrist and you are ready to conquer the world!
Be on the look out for lurking little ones while making.

Remember, Keep It Super Simple!!

Happy Crafting!

  1. I would be hard pressed to pick my favorite super hero–Batman is pretty cool, though. 🙂 I wouldn’t mind having Wonder Woman’s figure! lol This is a fun project–there is so much out there for little boy super hero stuff, so it’s nice to see something for little girls.
