Accessories Anonymous: Leather Cuff GIVEAWAY!

I was at the fabric store a few weeks ago and saw a bin full of leather scraps for $1 each. I bought a handful of them and finally got around to making something with them today:
They are a bit crudely made, but for my first attempt, I am really happy. Sewing the petals on is pretty easy, but I struggled a bit with attaching the snaps. It's something that will take a little bit of practice for me to get really good at it, but once again, I feel that for a first attempt, I think I did pretty well! There are three cuffs with the petal detail- 1 maroon leather with pink leather petals, 1 pink leather with maroon leather petals and 1 navy blue suede with light blue leather petals. There's one other cuff that I made with an army green leather that is just an abstract design. It was also my very first attempt at attaching snaps and I didn't do as good a job with lining them up perfectly.

Each cuff measures about 7 1/2 inches, and will fit a 6-6 1/2 inch wrist. I think my favorite is the navy blue suede cuff, but I also love the pink and maroon ones. I like the color combinations- I guess I was pretty lucky to find these fabulous leather pieces at such a bargain price!

Anyway, for this giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment and you'll be entered into the drawing which will take place next weekend. The winner may choose one of these 4 leather cuffs as their prize. You have this week to enter and I will allow up to THREE entries per person, which means you may leave up to three comments and each will be counted as a separate entry. Forward this post to your friends and tell them to enter the giveaway, too!

Have a great week!

Jan- I never even considered that! I guess I have international readers! lol

Anyway, let's cross that bridge when we come to it. They are small, so I'm thinking even with international postage, it won't be that pricey to ship, so I'm gonna go out on a limb and say YES- UK gals included! :)
