leather and lace

for our next project, we used this site: http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=778

we cut some corners (mostly because we didn't have access to a sewing machine) but they turned out pretty sweet.

First, measure your leather to the size of your wrist.  Then measure out a piece or two of lace just a bit longer than your leather strip (don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect).

Next, use adhesive spray (the best invention EVER except it smells like horrible chemicals when you breathe it in and will probably kill off some brain cells).  Spray the lace (outside of your living space if possible)...
 and stick it to your leather piece...
Next was the tough part because you have to punch a hole in both sides of the leather so you can attach the snap.  This part was a bit frustrating so we didn't take a picture.  But Rachel figured out the hammering the snap on outside on the pavement worked well.  It will look something like this...
 When you're done snap it onto your wrist and you'll have yourself a snazzy cuff.
Pretty awesome, right?
