I'm having so much fun with those bike inner tubes. Plenty of folks before me have found inspiration in this rescued material, but I'm having a blast putting my own twist on it. I'm listening to what it wants to be... I'm experimenting with what it can do. I'll be showing you what I've come up with soon, but here's my very first attempt at introducing it to my sewing machine. They fell in love instantly! This is a stitch sampler cuff that has just the right amount of stretch to slip over my wrist but feel secure. It's lightweight and soft, but totally rugged and ready for anything. I wash a ton of dishes (no dishwasher here) and work with my hands constantly... from country chores to diy projects. Jewelry doesn't usually fit in, with the exception of that moonstone ring I've had since college. But this cuff? It hasn't come off the entire weekend. And it feels like me: urban country. Yup, that's my new name for my style... which I never thought of as a style until recently. I'm planning on making some more for my shop come the holidays... what a great little gift, right? Perfect for bike lovers or any other urban country folk out there!
