DIY Lace Cuffs



Well here we are in the new year. Now that we have all survived the end of the world and New Years Eve, it’s safe to say we are good for a while. I feel like I have finally caught up on my sleep from a few late nights and I feel great! Four more days till I go back to work. So I’m going to relax, read, and work out. As a regular gym member, I gotta say that I’m a little apprehensive about going to the gym today. I went all last week but the first week of January can be a little hectic. I swear when the doors open to the gym you’d think it was Black Friday at Walmart. Anyways, on boxing day I purchased a super cute pair of brown boots…on sale of course! I love the casual look of brown boots because they pull together so many different looks. Bohemian, hipster, vintage, dressy casual….and the list goes on. I know it’s a little too cold to go bare-legged in boots this time of year but I am prepared for the first warm day. I was inspired by the look of lace tights that are all the rage right now so I wanted to make a summer equivalent. So once the warm weather comes I thought lace boot cuffs would be super cute. They were so easy to make and inexpensive. I made two pairs (with fabric left over) for under $5.00! And it took me less than 3 minutes to make two pairs. Hope you like it!!

You will need:

  • measuring tape
  • stretchy wide lace
  • scissors
  • sewing machine or serger (you could sew by hand if you needed to)
  • buttons (optional)

Step 1. Measure around your calf. Subtract one inch and cut that length from your lace.


Step 2. Fold the fabric in half right sides facing in. Sew along edge.

Step 3. Turn cuffs right side out and you should have tube shaped cuffs.


I made two pairs of these cuffs. A white pair with no buttons and an off-white pair with three little buttons. I absolutely love the look of the peek-a-boo of lace. I’m also going to make a black pair that I can wear over my skinny jeans with my black boots. Of the possibilities. I hope you like your creation and if you have any questions let me know!


These boots have stood toe-to-toe with the biggest baddest joes. Like they had some things to prove. These boots

  8. What width lace did you use?

  9. They sell this kind of lace at the joann’s down here.. They have it where the ribbons and the fringe and such are.

  10. I can’t seem to find the lace at Joann or anywhere around my neck of the woods! Where did you find yours? I love them, btw!

    • Oh darnit! Nothing is worse than getting excited about a craft that you can’t find supplies for. I bought my lace at Fabricland, but maybe at last resort you could even try Walmart in their sewing section?! The best of luck!!
