I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I spent my weekend decorating for Christmas. I'm hoping to finish up tonight so I can share some Christmas projects with you this week.
The project I want to share today is a DIY Bib Necklace. I love the blingy bib necklaces, but I don't love the $40 price tags. Here's an easy way to make your own!
I bought some decorative collars at Hancock Fabrics. I used a 40% off coupon, so I got them for less than $10. Sometimes they run them on sale too.
Here's the decorative collar I used:
I pinned the collar to the fleece
I measured out two pieces of black ribbon (16 inches each).
I sewed the collar to the fleece, keeping as close as possible to the edge of the beading.
When it came to the ribbons, I did back and forth stitches to make a strong seam.
Next cut the extra netting away (making sure not to cut into your sewing).
Voila! A bib necklace in no time!
I'm waiting for a date night or party to wear it. Or maybe I'll use it to dress up a casual outfit for work. I'll let you know how it wears.
*No sew option: use fabric glue or a hot glue gun to attach the fleece and ribbon to the collar.
