Getting Crafty... time and place

Alright, there was a tie on which craft people wanted to do, so I took matters up with

And has spoken.

I assigned each of the crafts in the THIS POST a number  
and this is craft #3...the craft we will be doing. 
We will be making necklaces!

Above are just some examples of some necklaces... to give you an idea for yours.

When: April 24th, 1:00 PM
Where: My apartment... if you don't know where it is, leave a comment so I can email it to you
What you'll need: 
**scrap fabric in chosen color(s)... basically anything will work (silk, cotton, jersey).  I like to use just your cheap ol' cotton, because, well, it's cheap and you can make it fray easily.  For this project I will probably being using some old clothes in my DI pile, but if you don't have any scrap fabric, I know Walmart has a bin of marked down fabric (and I think the Cotton Shop does too??).
**hot glue gun and sticks (I got my hot glue gun at The Dollar Store a couple years ago).  Of course this is something we could share, if you don't have one, but it'll probably be easier for you if you have your own.
**scissors...also something we can share
**one piece of felt (the color doesn't really matter... it will be at the back of your necklace)
**about a yard of ribbon.  (this is to tie the necklace around your neck)
**any embellishment (jewels, buttons, beads...etc) you want your necklace to have

And that's it!  Please let me know if you are wanting to come 
(so I know how many chairs and such I need)  Thanks!

Sorry if your craft didn't get chosen.
At some point all the crafts will be made, 
so stay tuned for that :)


  1. I'm so sad I can't be there- I've wanted to make those necklaces for a long time!! I hope you have fun- and maybe some day I'll be brave enough to try making one on my own. :)

  2. dang, i think i'll just barely miss it with being outta town :(
    how fun though!!

  3. Wish you guys could have been there too!
    Tiffany, you totally could do it yourself! :) Maybe someday I'll post a how-to or video on how to make one... with no sewing involved. I think you'd have fun!


It's the cool thing to do.
