Here is a great and inexpensive way to dress up your wardrobe! A little frill goes along way and so does saving your money! High end boutiques are selling these necklaces for $95.00 and I will show you how to make them for about $5.00 in just 7 easy steps!
Today's tutorial: Ruffle NecklaceSupplies needed:
-ribbon or strip of fabric measuring approx. 9" in length and 2" in width (measure to your liking!)
-needle and thread
-chain ( I bought mine at an estate sale for $2)
-button or other embellishing object
If you are using synthetic ribbon, you will want to melt the edges to prevent from fraying. If you are using fabric, I personally like the frayed look so you may want to keep edges raw!
Fold ribbon or fabric over so that the top comes down to middle of the ribbon. (If you want a double ruffle, simply fold in half) and sew to make a pocket.
Insert loop turner all the way through pocket and attach one end of chain to loop turner. Pull chain through so that the chain is fed completely through pocket.
Take a needle and thread and stitch the back of the ribbon to the chain to hold ruffle in place. Be careful not to go through to the front of your ribbon or fabric with your stitch because you will not want the stitch to show.
