Stitch up a pretty fabric necklace following this simple six-step tutorial. We’ve officially found a way to take our must-have fabrics everywhere with us!
You will need:
• 2.5mm crochet hook (UK 12)
• Square of fabric, approximately 20cm (8″)
Sketch one side of your scalloped design on a piece of paper and cut out, or print the template provided and cut out.
To prepare your necklace chain, ch 80, knot the end, fasten off and trim the tail. Make another. They should measure around 35.5cm (14″) long.
Fold fabric in half, right sides facing, and pin template to fabric, lining the bottom edge with the edge of the fabric fold. Cut out a second piece.
Place one fabric piece on a flat surface, right side up. Pin the crochet chains to each end of the fabric shape. Keep them clear of the sewing path by securing with pins.
Place second fabric piece on top, right sides together. The crochet chains should be sandwiched in between. Pin and sew with a 5mm (¼”) seam allowance, leaving a gap to turn.
Turn. Tuck in the seams and press. Use a pin to coax out the curves to get a nice smooth shape. Whip stitch the opening shut.
