Me


And I have a wicked fun project to share with you!  Do you love Pinterest?  Are you addicted to it yet?  'Cause, folks, let me tell you, I LOVE THAT PLACE!!!!  When I stumbled upon a fabulous tutorial for a fabric scrap necklace I knew EXACTLY what fabric I was going to use for it!

Samantha Walker Braided Scrap Necklace


I KNOW?!  RIGHT?!  I love it!  YAY!  I used Samantha's fabulous Decadence collection for this one. It's REALLY simple!  Just pull out three long fabric scraps - I tore mine from larger pieces to give them nicely frayed edges, and braid together. I created two braided ropes for mine. One with deeper tones and a slightly shorter one with light tones.

Closure


To finish the ends, I stitched the two ropes together making the secure and then wrapped them in wire and attached them, one to the other, with the wire. There is no clasp, as it is large enough to fit over the head easily. Super simple and so pretty!

I also created a pretty little card to go with it. Seeing as the fabulous Orchard Harvest collection matches this fabric so brilliantly!


Thank You

I also stamped the sentiment with Samantha's Ornate Artisan Stackers set from Unity! The flowers I had on hand and the twine is from May Arts, of course!

So, that is what I have to share with you today! YAY!!! Hop along to the other designers to check out what they have created! These are some talented chicas, let me tell you!!! Your next stop is Jennifer Beason's fabulous blog! P.S. It just so happens to be Jennifer's birthday, so be sure to tell her HAPPY BIRTHDAY when you get there! See you soon! Happy Wednesday!

This is also my WOYWW post, as these projects are EXACTLY what have been on my workspace!

  38. Wonderful card and what a creative necklace! Is that the same technique that some people do those rugs out of? I hope that sounds like a genuine question, really it is! Love everything you did for the hop! I missed it, but I am hopping anyhow!
