Default Re: Need help in making a wristlet (that I can attach flowers to)

This is the way I make them.. short and so easy.. I buy upcycle silk blouses at thrifts then cutt the cuff off of it.. I take my tiny scissors and trim the silk so all you have is the cuff. A cuff is usually a perfect size for a womens wrist. Sometimes I just move the button. If you did not want to use an upcycle blouse, buy one chop of the cuff and take a pattern.
