How-To: Medic Alert Cuff


Urban Threads has a great little tutorial by Lindsay Hartwell on how to make a rather stylish Medical Cuff. Lindsay was inspired to create this for her boyfriend, who is allergic to both cashews and pistachios, and had a close call on travels to India. Medical alerts are embroidered on the inside of the cuff, while the caduceus on the outside is recognized internationally. Nice!


I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
