I am bringing home a tutorial I did for the Sewing Rabbit a couple of years ago. It's a great statement piece and one my daughter enjoys wearing. Also, it's great for using some of the scrap fabrics you have laying around.
Do you have piles of fabric scraps and don't know what to do with them, but it's fabric you love and don't have the heart to throw out? I have a cute little project for you and perfect for the Holidays coming up as they make a great gift or it's that cute accessories that will make an outfit pop: The Fabric Necklace.
It's a fabric necklace which is filled with stuffing and super simple to make. Here is what you will need:
- Fabric scraps.
- Large Beads
- Embroidery Floss & Needle
- General sewing supplies
Are you ready? Here are the few steps you need to follow.
You can mix and match your colors and prints or keep it tonal. You could do this with just one long piece of fabric as well. I love playing around with my fabrics and finding the right combinations.
Instead of some stuffing, you could put actual beads in your fabric tube, I just find that for kids this method is more comfortable and not as heavy.
You can add as many large beads as you want or leave them all out. They add a nice touch and added texture. To determine the length of your ribbon at the back, you might want to try the necklace first. I actually made mine a little too long, so my bow ended up bigger than I had hoped for.
Here is a closer look at the necklace.
My daughter loves her necklace. I've made one for myself too. I cannot wait to make one in just 1 color and maybe even try knotting it. The possibilities are endless.
Make it your own with your favorite colors, any length you want, even try doubling it up.
I have a few nieces I know will love these and I am thinking of making my mom and sister one for the holidays. Hmmmm, maybe in black and gold! What do you think?
