How to Make Fabric Jewelry

I’ve always wanted to make fabric necklaces, but for some reason I just never got around to it.  I finally made some with a really fun fabric collection called Panda-rama by Maude Asbury (which was provided by Blend Fabrics to Tie Dye Diva).  The Rice Paper fabrics are perfect for fabric jewelry!

My girl and I threw some wood beads into the mix to add to the boho feel of these, but when paired with the Garnet Top/Skirt/Dress pattern from Tie Dye Diva, they also look so sophisticated!

This was seriously such a fun project, and now there’s a tutorial on Tie Dye Diva’s blog to make these really simple necklaces and bracelets.  The greatest part is all you need are some fabric scraps and beads.  It’s also super kid friendly, so this would be a lot of fun to make with kids too (just make sure they don’t try to swallow those beads!).

I was glad to finally get around to making the Garnet top and dress.  Goodness!  That skirt has some serious twirl.  I loved watching the movement of it as she walked too.  I know more of those are coming down the pike, along with some shorties underneath!  I love the waistband too.  It’s a knit (also called a yoga) waistband which is comfortable on her.  In addition to her sensory issues, she gets lots of tummy aches, so I know this is a very welcome addition to her wardrobe.

So are you going to try out some fabric jewelry?  Such a great way to use up those scraps!
