Fabric necklace

Back in April I spotted a tutorial for a gorgeous fabric necklace by Georgina Giles, I immediately knew I wanted to make one out of the leftovers fabric from my summer skirt. Unfortunately at this point I hadn’t even started the skirt, so Georgina's blog post went into my favourite’s folder for a whole five months. Yes I know what you're thinking, it took me a rather long time to make that skirt. But last month I finally finished it and this week I FINALLY made the fabric necklace!


Georgina’s tutorial was so easy to follow, and the necklace itself is so easy that I made most of it in a single evening - definitely my kind of craft project. Even better than that is the fact that it cost absolutely nothing to make, just leftover fabric, beads and thread from my craft box. Perfect.




Despite thinking the fabric looks nice and summery on my skirt, I’ve decided the necklace is just as good for autumn as the reds and oranges could also pass for autumnal leaves... what do we think? And I’ve also come up with an idea for an on trend autumn/winter version of the necklace, so this Saturday I'll be scouring Brighton’s fabric stores for the perfect light-weight tartan!

  1. That is gorgeous! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the tutorial - I remember you saying that you wanted to make one from the same fabric as a skirt so that it matched - and to see it realised is wonderful!
