Fall weather is here and long sleeves are a staple for layering. Adding these ribbed cuffs with thumb openings to your knit shirts or activewear are a great way to customize long sleeve T's and knit shirts.
Materials and Tools Needed:
- 2/ 13 x 5 pieces of Ribbed Fabric
- OLFA 60mm RTY-3/DX Ergonomic Rotary Cutter
- OLFA 7-Inch SCS-2 Serrated-Edge Stainless Steel Scissors
- OLFA RM-MG/NBL 24"X36 Double-Sided, Self-Healing Rotary Mat, Navy
- OLFA QR-1x12 1" X 12" Frosted Acrylic Ruler
- With right sides together fold cuff in half lengthwise with raw edges lined up. Pin.
- Mark thumb opening using your OLFA ruler and fabric marker.
- Based on the length of my cuff, I measured and stitched 5 inches in from the bottom edge of each end of the cuff. I created a 2 inch stitch in the middle of the cuff.
- Press the seam flat.
- Fold the cuff in half with wrong sides together matching seams and thumb hole opening.
- Stitch the seams together at the opening on the wrong side of the cuff. Repeat on other side of opening.
- Turn cuff right side out completely and press.
- Your cuffs are ready to connect to your long sleeve garment.
Voila Your Done!
