Link Party No.85/ Denim flower necklace

I am going to share how I made this denim necklace today. It all started when I altered my jeans... I had scraps from the bottom of the jeans. Toss? No way!

I decided to make a necklace.

First, I cut out several circles in two different sizes. Then, fold the circles in half and start sewing...

Then open the circle once, and fold it again in a different direction, so the middle part will look like a "+". You need a large circle and a small circle to make one flower. Layer them together, and then sew pearls in the middle. Make a few dark flowers (right side of the fabric), and a few light flowers (wrong side of the fabric) to give the necklace some shade and an interesting look.

I used sheer ribbon to sew the flowers on.

You could use the ribbon all the way to tie it in the back, but I decided to use chains and such to finish it off.

Ta-da!

I am loving this new necklace, the best part is that it didn't cost me much to create this. A necklace like this will make my outfit "pop", but it's not too fancy so I can wear it in everyday life, I love jewelry like that. :)

Ok, everyone, what have you been working on, or were you too busy with the holidays? No, no, not you guys, I know you have something fabulous up your sleeves. Please share what you been creating, visit each other and have fun!

As usual here are the rules for linking:

1. Please post something YOU made. It doesn't matter if it is crochet, quilt, clothing, anything would be fine. I want to see it! If you use someone's idea or patterns please give them the rightful credit.

2. Link to your specific post, that way it is easier for everybody to find and read it.

3. Please grab the "Tea Rose Home" grab button, and link back from your post. If you can mention the party in your post or place the button on your side bar, that would be great! I want more people to have a chance to come and show off their creations.




That's it! Go ahead to link up and show us what you have been working on!

  18. I have a question regarding the sewing portion. As I'm not very familiar with a sewing machine other than basic stitches. On the largest circle and once you folded it in 1/2, did you just sew a couple of stitches at the crease or along the entire length? What stitch width did you use? The second, smaller circle is where I'm really confused. Did you fold it in 1/2 then in 1/2 again and just stitch that crease? Sorry for the confusion but am one of those crafty perfectionists (I know....oxymoron ) but hate starting something and not knowing 'exactly' how to do it. Thank you for sharing. Going to embellish a lampshade and curtains by doing this.
