FREE cross-stitch patterns to make your own fashionable leather cuff bracelets!
I received free product from DMC but all opinions and ideas are my own.
I am so excited that cross-stitch is becoming more mainstream and, dare I say it, COOL! There are so many creative ways to use it and so many pattern possibilities that it can be incorporated just about anywhere. This isn’t your Grandma’s cross-stitch, y’all!
When DMC sent me some of their new Stitchable Cuffs I was super excited to try them out. These leather bracelets have pre-punched holes just waiting to be stitched and customized! I knocked out two patterns right away, and I love how different they are! And I’m sharing the free patterns with you guys.
I started with the floral pattern on the navy cuff and chose colors for the flowers, leaves, and used plain white for the “background.”
The holes on the cuffs are a bit larger in diameter than your standard cross-stitch fabric so to be sure the pattern really stood out I used all 6 strands of DMC thread. You can definitely use less, but I like the chunkier look it gives the pattern.
I also wanted to create a super fun cuff, and what’s more fun than Wonder Woman?? I used a very sharp needle for this cuff because, for the angles in that W, you need to push the needle through the center of a cross-stitch square to do half stitches. My needle went through the leather without a problem. Again, I used 6 strands of DMC thread for the pattern, but only 2 strands for the black thread. It turned out so fun on the white cuff!
I have big plans for the remaining black and pink cuffs. My main problem is too many ideas and not enough cuffs!
