* fabric necklaces

Posted on August 12th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry, Sewing/Fabric Crafts.


I got to spend last weekend with Becket and Amy in what I hope are becoming yearly get-togethers (last year was Seattle).  Becket already posted about some of our fun.  One of the things we made were these fun fabric bead necklaces from Curious Bird’s tutorial.

You sew a tube from a silky scarf and alternate beads and knots.  Our “homework” was to find scarves to bring.  I have had this neat Japanese silk scarf in my fabric collection (can’t remember where I got it, unfortunately), and I really like how the pattern leads to unexpected bead combos.

Amy’s was even more interesting because she sliced a long diagonal piece of her scarf and it ended up perfectly symmetrical due to her excellent knot tying.  I think the bias cut made her knots more even than mine too.

You’ll have to go read CA Crafter to see more of Becket’s. :)
