Let’s shake it up and start our week with a fun fashion tutorial. This sash came with the sassy orange dress that I bought at Goodwill a few months ago. I didn’t love it with the dress, but you just don’t throw out raw silk. Am I right? I kept it on my craft shelf until this past week, when I realized that it was perfect-o for a fabric flower necklace.

Get excited, non-sewers! This is a “hot glue” project. : ) I twisted the fabric into a flower and clipped the end. Then, I used hot glue to attach the flower to a piece of felt. I did this 3 times, laying them beside each other. In hindsight, I would have curved them a bit, but I still like it this way.

I trimmed the felt around the set of flowers, so that it is mostly hidden. It’s not a big deal if some peeks though–it adds color and dimension. Here is a picture of the back.

Then, I hot glued a chain to the back of the flower set, making sure that there was even chain on each side.

Let it sit for a few minutes and you are good! Make one for yourself, make one for a friend.

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra
