* Leanne felt cuff

Posted on October 26th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry, Sewing/Fabric Crafts, Uncategorized.


I only finally got around to visiting the Kinokuniya bookstore in Seattle. Some nice reader had sent me a photo a long time ago of the craft section of the store, which had a sign advertising Crafting Japanese. It’s still up! In giant letters! And they were having a 10% off everything sale! So I got a few new books, including some really awesome felt books.

This felt cuff is from ISBN 9784579111152, and is also inspired by the final collection of Project Runway winner Leanne. I liked her all along, so I was happy to see her win. My first attempt at handsewing the aqua wavey-pom thingy was a miserable failure. I wasn’t even going to reattempt it, but Amy and Becket are visiting this week and helped me figure out v2: machine + handsew, with fewer layers, which worked way better. The thick cream felt is a scrap of the piece I got in Japan, last used for the felt sewing box.

The version in the book hooked with buttons and loops, but I used elastic instead. Action shot:

    of I love that cuff. It’s softly space-age.

    Love the cuff it would have totally gone with Leanne’s runway look. I’m very impressed with your felt pom pom prowess!

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
