Fabric Beaded Necklace

Added Oct 9, 2012

British Columbia...




Step 1 Determine Necklace Size


Measure the diameter of your beads (mine were about 8cm, or just over 3"). Add 1/2" to allow for a seam allowance of 1/4" (1/4" on either side of the rectangle). This will be the width of your fabric strip.

Decide how long you would like your necklace to be. I wanted something that would sit nicely on my collarbone, as opposed to a choker or a dangly necklace. But it’s totally up to you! My fabric strip was approximately 4" wide by 28".

Cut the rectangle from your fabric.

    Thanks for this fun tutorial! By the way, I think it should be ‘Measure the circumference of your beads’, not diameter :-)
