I try to be positive about Mondays!
Today I am showing you how easy it is to make a sweet embroidered pendant necklace.
It is very easy to make!!!
Here is a new wood design from my daughter Selina....She makes wooden pendant blanks...
This is the new rectangle. Below it is a scrap of cotton batting.
I always glue a piece of batting to the inner part...where the design will be.
I love this quick dry glue from Aleene's.
Just glued on ...cut any batting that hangs over the edge.
All glued..let dry.
I typed up some words on the computer...in some different fonts...I liked this one.
Here is the word dreamy so you can just copy and save this if you like.
Using a light box or a sunny window....place the word under some cool fabric.
Trace the word using a blue disappearing marker.
I placed the word in between some of the wilder area of the print.
All hooped up and ready to stitch...I couldn't decide what color to use...but finally picked a green color.
This took me a few minutes...so easy and fast.
I then rinsed the blue marker away with water and let dry.
I then placed the design over the inner rectangle....then put the outer rectangle over the fabric design....press down.
I am cutting the excess fabric on the back down to 1/4" around the entire rectangle.
Now I glue the edge to the back.
Top and bottom...
I cut out a piece of felt...big enough to cover the inner rectangle.
Place on the back and press down.
I decided to add a little wool heart and a small gold safety pin!
Stop by her shop sometime....these are some of her other shapes...plus she has more!
