Make It Monday

A long time ago I tried to make Thursdays, THANKFUL THURSDAYS. I think it lasted one week, not because I didn't have anything to be thankful for, I just failed at being consistent. That being said, I am going to try something even more difficult by making Monday's a day to share some of the projects I have been working on. I love reading CRAFTY blogs, but I am neither creative nor organized enough to have a blog completely devoted to crafting. But, I think I can handle once a week.

Project #1: Fabric Bead Necklace

I love the vintage quality you get when using fabric as an accessory. When I finished the necklace I thought I needed some matching earrings as well. I dug in my jewelry box and found some fluorescent heart-shaped earrings. Using hot glue I covered them with black fabric and then made some tiny rosettes to glue on as well. I distinctly remember proudly wearing those bright pink earrings to school in the 80's. I think I have made a substantial improvement to the original style. Here is the TUTORIAL for the fabric necklace. I am really happy with the way it turned out.
