Day 39

Day39_fabricnecklaceOut of the jaws of disaster… This was supposed to be a quick and easy little project to see me sail magnficently to the end of the 40 Makes but turned into a bit of an epic – all because I cut the fabric 2cm too narrow.

This little beaded necklace is really easy to construct – consisting of a fabric tube into which you push beads, either glass, cotton or wood.  I however misjudged the size of my balls in comparison to my tube and just at the moment of triumph discovered that the former were far to big for the latter.

Of course I could have just cut another length of fabric out – but I couldn’t waste what I had – so I just had to make a little trip to my favourite sewing emporioum Rainbow Silks in Great Missenden (right next door to the rather scrumptilumtious Cafe Twit) to get some different sized balls.  Three attempts later you see the finished result modelled here most beautifully by Kitty.
