          Show Off Your Embroidery Skills With a Stunning Pendant Necklace

          Actions

          Take a look at your closet: What have you already embroidered? It's likely that a T-shirt , jacket, and maybe even monogrammed pajamas are in there — and that's great. But here's an off-the-T-shirt way to showcase your stitching in style.

          DIY Embroidered Pendant

          What You'll Need:

          Instructions

          1. Hoop Up and Design

          Hoop up your fabric and, if you like, draw out your design. We used a geometric triangle design, but you can use your imagination.

          2. Start Stitching

          Stitch your design using colorful embroidery floss and a needle.

          3. Trim It Down

          Trim around your design, leaving a little bit of buffer around the stitching. Dab a bit of fabric glue on that buffer, on the wrong side of your design. Fold the edges in (this makes your necklace a bit sturdier).

          4. Add the Backing

          Cut a piece of felt to the same size and shape as your embroidered design. Use hot glue to stick the felt to the back of the piece — and be sure to tuck the ends of your necklace cord in there, too.

          5. Attach a Clasp

          Finish it off by adding your favorite kind of jewelry clasp on the end of the cording.

          Where some people see a plain sweatshirt, we see a blank canvas for needle and thread. Here's how to transform an everyday layer into a top that's truly unique to you.

          Our motto? Never settle for plain. So when we found a stash of plain, solid-colored pencil cases, we just had to deck them out with a bit of embroidered felt.
