A New Fan Cuff { Sort of }

Hey, any Frankie Ballard fans out there? In my home he is known as my "boyfriend". Lord knows, I have a lot, but Frankie is at the top of my list. He recently posted a mailing address for himself and asked for old school fan mail. So I am going old school, teen style and sending him a handmade gift. I hope he likes it <3

Yep, Frankie is a Michigan native. Below is the back side of the cuff, fabric obtained from a really, really cool men's shirt that was too small for anyone in this family.

Double snaps on this one.

I did not turn the edges, instead sewing it so it will purposely fray. I did double stitch the edges, in a veeerrrrry small stitch so hopefully the edges won't fray so much that the cuff falls apart.....

Not sure why the videos insist on staying stuck together but whatev . . . . .The first one is for you guys and the second one is pure self indulgence. Enjoy!
