Beaded Edge Cuff

This will be my last ultra suede cuff sample for a bit.  I hope you enjoyed the earlier posts too!

I am turning the new John Bead ultra suede strips into cuffs with crystal snaps.  The Crystal Applicator allows me to add a snap closure in just seconds.  The teal cuff looks just gorgeous with the addition of the snap closure.

I decided I wanted to bead the edges of this cuff.  I marked all the holes I would need because a needle does not pass through the suede easily…it is better to have a hole already in place.  Then I wondered, what could I use to make the holes quickly?

I used my Metal Complex plier circle hole punch to make all my holes!  It was so quick and easy.  The plier was designed to make holes in metal…so ultra suede was super easy to punch through!  I used SWAROVSKI PETROL BLUE beads and Dazzle-it SILK in Navy Blue to sew them in place.
