PINK Bow Cuff {Color My Summer}

Color me HAPPY!
We may be just a few days short of the "official" season...
But isn't summer the most vibrant, colorful time of the year?!
It makes me think of fireworks and popsiciles; parties and pools!

It is definitely my favorite time of the year.

I am "tickled PINK" about my project today because I am participating in the fabulous "Color My Summer" event, hosted by my gals at KoJo Designs and Delia Creates (Delia just happens to be my blog crush if you didn't already know!)

I love colors, but to be completely honest, I feel like my color palette can be limited.  Why?!  Because I live with 2 boys!  I often find my projects stuck in a rut of blues, greens, yellows, and browns.
Not today, my friends. Not today.
Today, I'm sharing a project that makes ME feel like a lady! 


I broke free from some bad color habits by spotlighting the color PINK.  And not just a shy, tame, pastel pink.  Let me introduce you to a bright and fun let's-celebrate-summer-magenta pink.

Not a sewer?  Don't worry, if you can sew a straight line, I'll walk you through how to create your own suede bow cuff bracelet in under 10 minutes.

By the way, I often worry when I hear a time limit on a project because I know it will take me at least double or triple the time (probably because of my many oopsey daisies!)... so you can believe me when I tell you that this will be easy!


I chose a bright magenta suede for this project, although you can definitely choose any of your favorite colors!

It's as easy as THAT!  The velcro is hidden easily under your wrist.  That lovely bow just makes me feel like a lady!
As I was making my own bow cuff, I quickly got a few requests for my sisters and Mom... so I whipped up a few more suede bow bracelets in other colors, too.
A very fun splash of color to jazz up the summer!

Like my dress?  It's Shabby Apple! 

Thank you, Delia, for asking me to color your summer (and mine, too!)
I can't wait to see what the other guests are scheming up for every color of the rainbow!
