Introduction: Lacey Jean Cuffs

Cutify your jeans with lace.  No sewing required!

Step 1: What You'll Need

A pair of jeans (narrower leg openings are best)
Lace (measure enough that will fit around the bottom of each cuff) usually a bit less than a yard.
Scissors
Iron
 
Scrap paper

Step 2: Cut the Lace to Fit Your Jean Cuffs

Turn your jeans inside out.
Measure the lace around the bottom of each jean cuff and cut it so it overlaps a bit.

Step 3: Cut the Heat Bond

Cut a piece of Heat Bond to fit the length of the lace.  
 
Place a piece of paper on your ironing board, then your lace, then the Heat Bond over the top.  The reason why you have paper on the bottom is to ensure the Heat Bond doesn't stick through your lace to the ironing board.  Now, use your iron to adhere the Heat Bond to the lace.  Repeat for the other cuff.

Step 4: Iron Heat Bond to Jean Cuffs

Now you're ready to iron on the lace to the bottom of the cuff.  Make sure your jeans are inside out. 
Remove the paper backing from the Heat Bond.  
Place the shiny side down on the jean cuff.  I put mine above the hem.  
Lay a piece of paper over the lace so the Heat Bond doesn't stick to your iron.  
Use your iron to adhere the lace to your jean cuff.  Rotate the cuff around and iron the other side.  Make sure you rotate the cuff around the front too so the lace adheres. 
You'll want to make sure your lace overlaps at the seam so you don't have a visible edge. 
Repeat for the other cuff.
Yer done! 
Put on your jeans and roll up your cuffs. 
Yer cute!

Your lacy jean cuffs are great. Nice detail with contrast between the delicate fabric and the strong jeans fabric! Well done!

Commented on the wrong pic…these shoes. The others are cute too, though. I think I have some shoe envy.

Absolutely adorable. Question though: who makes the red shoes? They are just precious.
