I made for a polish web site as a ‘DIY’ project, so the tutorial is aviable here: http://lula.pl/lula/1,94041,7624498,DIY___wiosenny_naszyjnik.html it’s in polish, but u can get the idea from the pictures :) however if u have problems, i can translate it for you :)

      My daughter is also 21 months old (will be 2 in mid-May)! I’m in German Village and haven’t made it up to Worthington since moving back. I lived here 5 years ago for a couple of years, though, so I’m familiar with most areas.

      ha! ember was born the last week of may! it’s such a great age, she loves getting dressed up in the things i make for her right now—now if i can get that to last through the teenage years, we’ll be all set :)

    Thanks so much for instructions and DEFINITELY for the fabric suggestions : ) I’m going to Atlanta anyway on Tuesday so I’ll definitely look for that fabric store. I’ve never thought about asking SCAD but I’m definitely going to give them a call. Thanks so much for the suggestions.

    Hi there! Thank you a lot on the beautiful comment you left on my wall. Actually the belt is not attached and it comes off! I didn’t want to put a zipper nor the elastic band so instead of these two I put the belt which serves as a support. Glad you liked it! Oh, and congratulations on your first creation! Hope more are to follow soon!

    Hi there, I’m so glad you commented on my creation. I saw that you were wondering where I got the metallic linen. I purchased it last year from a nearby Joann’s. I have seen it again this year. It came in gold and silver. It’s such a fun fabric. Anyway, I hope that helps you on your search. I can’t wait to see some of your creations!

    Thank you! I used hobby paint, that is made for using on clothes. It is washable if you iron it after painting.
