I made this flower "bib necklace" using some of my rolled flowers, and other various fabric flowers. The silver tulle necklace is made like this, and the other two are flowers I've seen around, but never posted a tutorial on. I used some Swarovski crystal beads that I had from a vintage necklace that once belonged to my Grandmother. I figured that added to the sentimentality of this piece, plus I love the sparkle it adds.
I first made the flowers, then laid them out on my kitchen table until I came up with an arrangement that I liked.
Then I hand sewed each flower onto a piece of felt, and cut the felt out so that you wouldn't see it behind the flowers.
Then I made some straps out of the same blue fabric that I use on the flowers, and sewed some toggles on them for a clasp.
Of course I had to try it on, just to make sure it worked okay. I didn't wear it anywhere, I promise.
I hope you like this Kate, I promise it's on its way tomorrow. Happy Birthday!
