Mini Granny Cuff

These look like grannyish jellyfish multiplying!

So these granny squares are
made from embroidery thread with a 3mm hook.
They measure about 1 1/2 inches square.

After stitching them together, and only one coat of fabric stiffener -
they were firm but still had movement.
 (thought I'd have to add more than that!)

Added a couple of snap fasteners.

Just as well it was only one coat of fabric stiffener - otherwise it
 would have been a nightmare to sew through!

And its a mini granny square cuff for my crochet girl for Xmas!
(So hard to photograph this).

I found an arm to model it, the only thing is - she wants one now as well!
 You can just see the snap fasteners holding it together in this shot.
I've still got one granny left, that can be made into a brooch too - yay!xx

PS. I haven't shown you what my crochet girl (Miss 10)
made for her teachers birthday last week:

It wasn't small - about the size of the palm of your hand.
I hope she makes some really big ones sometime!x
