Cuff Bracelet with Crochet Flowers

I wanted to add a little something extra to my two grandmas' Christmas gifts.  For the last couple of years we have gotten them framed pictures of our kiddos.  My adorable kids add cheer to every day!  I couldn't resist adding a little touch of handmade love to their gifts, so I decided to make them a fabric bookmark with a crochet flower attached to the top.  I didn't take any pictures before I sent them off, so I can't show them to you, but I thought they turned out cute.  My husband saw the bookmark and he told me that he thought I could make a really neat cuff bracelet using the same idea.  I couldn't resist trying, and this is what I came up with:

I love it!!  I really like the fabric that I used, and it worked perfectly with the two different colors of cotton yarn.  The flowers are detachable using small snaps, and the cuff attaches with two larger snaps.  Now I want to make lots more with all different kinds of fabric!!  I am working on listing some in my etsy shop, so feel free to take a look!
