With the New Year Clean up and Organize fest I have been doing a bit of stash busting. I’m not sure who’s happier about it, me or my husband. I had a bit of a collection starting of things I had plans for. You guys know all about that, right? Tell me I’m not the only one. Anyway, I’ve seen so many cute fabric necklaces and decided to give it a go with my stash.
I like to call her Annabelle.
Isn’t she fun?! Chunkiness, bold colors/pattern and hardware all in one necklace. Ya, you’re pretty much going to die when you see how easy it is!
Make Fabric Necklace
Fabric D ring belt
(don’t have one, skip down to the bottom to make one)
Big Wooden Beads
Cut a slit through the back side of the fabric on the belt jut below the d ring seam. Tie a knot in the opposite end of the belt where you want the beads to stop. Slide a bead in to the fabric tube through the slit all the way down to the knot. Twist your fabric and tie a knot after the bead. Add another bead and tie another knot. Continue until you have your desired look.
Fasten around your neck with the D rings. It is adjustable so you can make it the length you need with your current outfit.
Did you ever think it could be so easy to make a fabric necklace?!
Just sew a fabric tube about 1.5 inches wide. Sew one end shut and fold the other end over a pair of D rings and sew. If you put the beads in before you sew one of the ends you won’t have to cut a slit.
I would love to see if you make one!
