Hi All, I have now moved on to making these cute little cuffs!  I am so excited whenever I finish something new, I feel giddy!  I love,love,love to use old wool coats, the fabric is perfect for projects like this, it is so sturdy.  I line the inside with a second layer of wool fabric to make the piece nice and thick and I am having a blast finding old buttons and beads at thrift shops.
