Something New

I'm loving these long fabric necklaces lately.  You know the ones -- usually a mix of fabric flowers, ribbons and beads and/or chains.  They're super feminine and pretty.  It's easy to throw on with jeans and a t-shirt to look a little bit fancy, but looks equally good with your Sunday best.  They can get a little pricey, though -- especially the ones I like.  Whatever.  That's why when I ran across this great Anthropologie knock-off at Flamingo Toes I was THRILLED.  It looked easy {it was} and inexpensive {that, too}.  I found a super ugly plastic beaded necklace at the dollar store and a quarter of a yard of fabric that looked like silk {but wasn't -- no one will know}

and went to town.  I loved it so much I had to make another one.
My favorite parts are these clusters of fabric "petals".

I kind of wish I had bought just a little more fabric to make these a little bit rufflier, but they're fine as-is.  I tend to over-do sometimes.  If a little is good, a lot is better, right?

So that's what I've done with the few spare hours that I haven't spent painting scenery for the school play this week.  Some of these necklaces are sure to make they're way into my shop soon, if you're interested.  I'm heading to a leadership training meeting with the Young Woman General presidency tonight.  I'm really excited about it because I'm just that nerdy.  Have a great weekend, friends!

I'll probably link up {but check out the other projects even if I don't!}:

  1. I saw you wearing this necklace at pack meeting and I thought it was adorable! (and I don't usually like this style of necklace) The ruffles are what did it for me. And the color. Love it!

  2. I'll bet I spent as much time painting a "Y" on canvas for the boys' room as you did painting the entire set. Sigh. Not my forte, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. :) Cute necklaces.
