Today I have a DIY to share for my new favorite medium to display little embroideries. I’ve been making embroidered/fabric necklaces. They’re so easy, and so cute!
1. The first thing you do is trace the size of the bezel onto your fabric.
After you trace it, embroider your design onto the fabric. Keep in mind that you want it to be a tad smaller than your traced shape, since that was the size from the outside and not the inside.
3. Then you hot glue the piece of fabric to the piece of cardboard.
I tried using E6000 glue for some, and various other craft glues, hot glue seemed to work best for me. I’m thinking I’m also going to try some without the cardboard, and just glue the fabric in so it is sunken into the bezel.
4. Hot glue your cardboard piece with the fabric to the bezel. Put your chain, hemp, string, or whatever you chose onto the piece.
Ta-da! Super easy, and such a cute touch to an outfit. I’ve been wanting to make one for quite sometime (Bryan got me something similar for our anniversary last summer), and I’m now constantly thinking of new ones to make.
I also have a winner in this months giveaway! Gillian of Craftzilla is the lucky winner! Congrats, lady! You also won this little necklace as a bonus!:
