Red, White and Blue Fashion Cuffs

Red, White and Blue Fashion Cuffs

Here's a great and easy Fourth of July craft for the kids - fashion cuffs. While I give a general design below, you can encourage kids to design their cuffs however they like using red, white and blue felt.

And kids don't have to reserve these for the Fourth. They'd also make great super hero accessories, don't you think?

What you'll need

  • red, white and blue felt
  • glue (hot glue gun optional)
  • scissors
  • button
  • thread

How to make it

Red, White and Blue Fashion Cuffs step 1

1. Cut a strip of white felt for the base of the cuff. You can make it as wide or thin as you'd like. Just make sure it's longer than the wrist to accomodate a button.

Then cut two to three narrow strips of red for stripes, a small square out of the blue felt and a small square out of the white.

2. Glue red strips to the cuff base. I've found hot glue works best, but fabric glue will work too.
