Hi everyone! I'm Brenna from The Ol' Stitcharoo Guest posting for my lovely sister Liz while she's on a mini vaca with her family! I've decided to share a little DIY with you guys.
I've been wanting to make one of these necklaces, so this gave me an excuse to actually do it.
These neclaces turned out to be super easy and a ton of fun ...and just so happen to be adorable!
Choose 3 different fabrics for each braid strand, depending on how many strands you want to do, I did 2 strands (see the picture above). It doesn't matter what pattern they are because you won't be able to see it, just the colors.
Keep braiding until your desired length. I did my short braid 24" and the long one 27". Cut the remainder fabric off and sew another seam to the end to hold it together.
After you are done with all of your layers, overlap all the ends and pin together to make the shape of a necklace and sew them all together with a nice strong stitch. You might want to use a zig-zag stitch for extra strength. Trim the random strands sticking out of the braids ...and you're done!
