Fabric flowers are all the rage these days – you see them on jewelry, on clothing, and even in home accessories like on decorative pillows. And as I showed you last week, I did several fabric flower bib necklaces – which are also currently very trendy! Here’s a look again at the first flower bib necklace that I made:
I also mentioned last week that I made some video tutorials on how to make different kinds of fabric flowers, including how to incorporate them on necklaces. I finished editing my first video, and I’m very excited to share it with you! This first video tutorial shows you how to make the fabric flower bib necklace shown above. Now, this project does involve a little bit of sewing but I promise you that it is very easy and will take you no more than half an hour to make.
Here’s the list of supplies for this project (which I forgot to include in the video):
- cotton fabric (scraps will work)
- felt (about 8″ x 5″ should be enough)
- necklace chain (I used a 16-inch chain)
- glass pearls, beads, or other embellishments
- fabric scissors
- needle and thread that matches your fabric
- glue gun
You’ll have a better idea on how much fabric and felt you need after viewing the video.
The design of the necklace is very dainty – perfect for my teenager! Of course, it will look good on anybody! :D
I also used the fabric flower to give a nice accent to a couple of pearl necklaces! The burgundy looks really nice on Mica but Rinoa is super thrilled that I made her a pink one!
I hope you enjoyed the video – comments are very welcome! And if you try out this project (which I encourage you to do), I’d love to see your finished piece! Ciao!
