I ran across this tutorial for an Anthropologie necklace knock-off the other day. As I was reading through it, I realized 1). someone had shown it to me before, and 2). that it looked fun and easy. I was bored tonight, so instead of doing laundry or cleaning, I decided to make a necklace.
Here's the finished product.
It turned out pretty well. It looks a little rough in some places, and only has one flower/pouf because I had a bit of an incident with my first tube attempt and ran out of fabric to make a second one, but I like it. I bought another color fabric, too, so I can make a second some other day. I'm guessing number two will turn out far better now that I know what I'm doing.
Here's my creation on. I'm not sure what's up with the photo quality...it's worse than I normally get from my point-and-shoot.
And now here's a random video of R. The TV was singing "Old MacDonald" (in case you can't hear it in the background), and after a few times, B and I realized that R was singing along to the "e-i-e-i-o" part. So we rewound the TV and did everything we could to catch this on video. It was a pain to get him to cooperate, but it was worth it because it's super cute. (Sorry the video is sideways. I can't figure out how to flip it when it comes of my camera that way.)
