Here's a fun DIY project for your weekend: A fabric and bead necklace. It's easy to make an it's a great summer accessory. To make the necklace above, you will need the following supplies:
1 piece of thin fabric measuring 5" x 44"
2 1-inch wooden beads
3 1.25-inch wooden beads
Step 1: Hem each of the short ends of your length of fabric.
Step 2: You will sew the length of fabric into a tube with the wrong side of the fabric facing out. Place one of your larger balls in the fabric to measure how narrow you should sew your tube.
Step 3: Pin the length of the fabric and then sew it.
Step 4: Pin a safety pin to one end of the tube; you will use this to turn the tube of fabric right side out.
Step 5: Start pushing the safety pin throught he fabric tube until it comes through the opposite side and keep pulling until the tube is fully reversed.
Step 6: Place one of the 1.25-inch beads into the fabric tube.
Step 7: Push the wooden bead until it reaches the center of the fabric tube.
Step 8: Tie tight knots on either side of the bead. Step 9: Put a 1.25-inch bead in each side of the tube (on either side of the first bead) and tie knots to keep them in place. Step 10: Put a 1.25-inch bead in each side of the tube (on either side of the three 1.25-inch beads) and tie knots to keep them in place. Step 11: Sew the two ends of the fabric tube together.
