When Second Skin Fish Leather was introduced to the Metal Complex line I was not sure if I would know what to do with it. Happily, I can’t stop testing and experimenting with it.
This week I wanted to see if I could make a button hole on my sewing machine. I use a simple zigzag stitch to create my soon to be slashed opening.
Then I sewed on a button and already loved how this cuff was looking. The fish leather scales create the most beautiful texture and used as is, is very light weight.
My main button component I made from this vintage handkerchief.
I do love to save hand stitched projects and as you can see someone worked really hard to embellish this fabric.
My cuff is ideal for the summer!
The vintage handkerchief has now been up cycled to become this gorgeous component and it is beautifully framed by the fish leather colouring.
