Maybe you've embroidered a sweatshirt or jacket — and that's great. But we've discovered an amazing off-of-the-T-shirt way to showcase our stitching. Meet the embroidered pendant necklace!
What you'll need:
- A small square of needlepoint canvas
- Small embroidery hoop
- Air-soluble fabric marker
- Embroidery floss
- Fabric glue
- Necklace cord
Hoop up your fabric and, if you like, draw out your design. We used a geometric triangle design, but you can use your imagination.
Stitch your design using colorful embroidery floss and a needle.
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).
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.
Finish it off by adding your favorite kind of jewelry clasp on the end of the cording.
