Start with an
Anthropologie Target shirt....any color will do
Here's the ingredients:
1/4 yard of ivory (or any color) satin (2.99 a yard at Hobby Lobby)
1/4 yd. of ivory chiffon (4.99 a yard at Hobby Lobby)
3/4" wooden beads (2.99 for a bag at Michael's)
Cut 2 strips of satin 3 1/2" wide. Oh, this is 45" wide satin
Sew the ends together (right sides together.) Trim and press
Turn the satin in half (lengthwise) and sew across the top, turn the corner and sew lengthwise
trim the seam, it should look like this. Oh, leave one end open
Now, I use a long plastic knitting needle when I turn long things, so now turn it right side out
and press. It should now look like this!
here's the fun part. Insert however many beads you wanna use. I think I used 10 beads
make a tie close to the beads separating the beads between tying the knot
be sure and tie as close to the bead as possible
Also, I skipped about 6" and did another line of beads
Here's how to make the little chiffon petals.
Make a pattern like this. Be sure the stem is not too thin.
Cut as many as you would like on the fold
It should look like this
and just start tying them on. You don't have to do a double knot, just tie away!
and the finished product! Cute huh? And the raggier the chiffon gets the cuter it is!
and then I added black chiffon to my
cheap inexpensive black Target top
and you can shorten it to make a collar!
and there ya have it! A cheap Rag Top necklace.
Beats the 38.00 one I saw at my favorite store :)
Post questions and I'll answer, I promise!!!
have a great Wednesday y'all!
