My Button Bib Necklace
If you saw my post earlier this week for the Pearl and Button Heart Necklace, then you know I was planning on making a bib style necklace, as seen on LMM . Well I just couldn't resist, these necklaces are so much fun to design and are super easy to do. I decided to add some ribbon to the edges, too soften it up a bit. I just love it! I feel like a character in an old Victorian romance novel when I wear it. With Valentines next week, who couldn't use a touch of whimsy and romance in their everyday? Especially when your day is often filled with temper tantrums, dirty diapers, and spilled milk. I am not going to do a full tutorial because the process is similar to the necklace I posted two days ago. The only difference is the shape of the felt, the color of the felt, and the addition of ribbon. The ribbon was cut into 7 small pieces and then glued on to the edges of the bottom piece of felt. If you give this easy craft a try, I would love to see pics of your wonderful creations. Happy crafting everyone! Remember to check your stash of old and unused buttons, to up cycle in this project. I am now considering making a cuff bracelet in a similar fashion. I will share it when I do.
