Purple Diamond Peek a Boo Cuff

PROJECT B2179
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This cuff has a diamond cut out which is perfect to create a bead embroidered peek a boo design.
Instructions
Before beginning this project please watch our video: How to Bead Embroider a Basic Beaded Edge.
  1. Cut two strips of Ultra Suede, 7x2.5 inches each.
  2. Place the cuff onto the center of the strip. Trace the diamond shape in the center. Using your scissors cut out the diamond from the center. Do this with both strips so that the diamond cut outs line up. Note: the purple ultra suede does have slightly different colors on each side. Make sure you know which you want to use as the inside and the outside. For my design, I kept the lighter side on the outside.
  3. Cut a length of Nymo, about 3 feet in length. Begin to make the basic beaded edge on the inside edge of the diamond.
  4. Finish of the thread as seen in the video.
  5. Now take this piece and slip it into the cuff, so that both sides are around the cuff.
  6. Cut off a length of Nymo, about 6 feet in length. You may need to add more thread as you work.
  7. Begin in the center above the diamond and make a basic beaded edge all the way around the cuff. You will need to trim the ultra suede, using your snips, as you work.
  8. Once you have come to the end, finish off the thread as you had done before.
  9. All done!
