Last minute gifts - {A fringe necklace}


This is something I actually made for myself. The minute I saw this on the Internet I knew I would be making it sooner or later. For this project you need jersey, a metal chain and good scissors. Cut (long / short) strips of jersey and attach them on the chain. I should have worked more on the alignment, but hey - it's for me. I wouldn't mind :P
For this one I used a piece of jersey (teal / turquoise) I bought 2 years ago for a blouse but it was obviously destined for something else.Now I am wondering what to do with the rest. The black jersey strips are remnants from Jacob's Batman costume - I know, I know... I keep (s)crap(s), yes Sir!

Hoping that you are 'big' into the holiday heat I bid you farewell - for today!

cool necklace..if you dont have enough for any garment you can make pouches for your beautiful jewelry with it. Since its a jersey it will stretch to accommodate more..also try cutting it into thin strips & makeup a yarn ball. You can crochet with it too

Thank you Divya!
I don't have much of the fabric to turn it into a yarn ball, but I can make pouches! That's a great idea!
