Cut a 2" length of tube for cuff.
cut scrap fabric 3" wide and 1" longer than tube is when flattened out
glue outside of tube and lay fabric over it, fold over edges and glue.
Take contrasting fabric and pink or deckle edges 1/2" smaller than tube dimensions and glue to inside for a finished look.
Cut length of trim, fur, gimp, braid, or ribbon and glue to tube.
Measure on wrist to see how much elastic is needed, cut elastic just to fit wrist. Get another scrap fabric and make a tube to fit elastic. To do this, cut a length of fabric 2 times longer and 2-!/2 times wider than elastic. Sew, right sides together lengthwise, turn right side out and insert elastic. Gather fabric sleeve, sew ends to each side of tube cuff to finish, making sure to secure elastic, fabric and tube.
This cuff can be further decorated with beading or buttons, etc.
