Off the Cuff
I made a cuff book earlier in the year, from a frayed shirt and part of the sleeve fabric. To my shame I can't remember which blog I picked up this idea from, but it's not an original idea from me, I'm afraid.
This is the outside when it's buttoned up.
It shows the train tracks, the lavender farm I went past, the orchards, the other fields, and a river. There were two main routes. Both of them took me past parts of the Medway and the Thames.
It's been fun to stitch this over the year, although I had hoped that I'd be able to manage this simple stitching on the train journeys, which wasn't the case! never mind, I kept up to date with Radio 4 comedies, dramas and some other podcasts that I might not otherwise have made time to listen to.
If you've got an old shirt ready for recycling, maybe you'd like to make a cuff book too? I can recommend them as a splendidly portable project!
