Whew! One week down, 3 to go . . . I mentioned the other day that I don't think there is much in the world that couldn't be vastly improved by the addition of fabric and ribbon flowers, right? So when I saw this necklace on Pinterest, I knew I had to make it:
I think Theresa's necklace at 612 Riverside is absolutely beautiful! In my mind it could be dressed up for church or an evening out, but it would look equally good with jeans and a t-shirt. So I pulled some fabric and vintage buttons out of my stash and got to work. This is what mine looks like:
I can't ever get my rolled fabric rosettes to look as good as everyone else's on the internet, but I'm pretty happy with the vintage-y look of it. I made all my flowers and glued them onto some felt then I trimmed the felt down so it didn't show from the front. I cut a second piece of felt in roughly the same shape for added stability. I also took a chain necklace that I had in my jewelry box and cut it in half. When I glued the two pieces of felt together, I sandwiched the ends of the chain in between them on each side. It's not Brent's favorite of all the accessories I wear, but I really like it.
Uh-dorable! My wardrobe may need a couple more of these before too long. Thanks for checking in on my "31 days" projects. Tomorrow's project is decorative pumpkins. Have a great day!
