THE PROCESS:

Note: Try to find the thinest fabric you can to make this because if the knots are just as big as the pearls you loose the effect.

Materials:
– Small piece of felt
– Any kind of pearls, I used some old Christmas decoration pearls
-Cutting tools
-Hot glue gun
– Fabric left overs (I used Lycra because it's stretches good to make a thin knot and I had some decent pieces left from the inside of the babydoll)
Cut stripes, mines are 1.5 inches, but it depends on the size of you pearl, try to wrap the pearl in fabric and pin it making sure it goes trough, then leave enough space to sew.
Fold your stripe of fabric in half and sew. After you finish cut the extra leftover (you need to have the less material possible for the knots)
To turn them inside out I always use a safety pin.
1- secure the end of your strap with the safety pin.
2- turn the front to the inside of your strap.
3- pull trough the inside of your strap.
4- reach the other side and pull the safety pin out.
5- keep until all you turned the whole strap.
6- strap ready
1- Put one pearl carefully though the end.
2- Make knots in both ends
3-Pass another pearl.
4- Make another knot.

Do it for as many as you want!

I didn't do it all the way around, and leave some spots without pearls, because I want to attach, the flowers.
To make the flower

1- pass a needle in zig-zag thought the edge of your second piece of fabric.
2- secure the beginning and pass it all the way.
3- secure the end and round the corners.
4- roll the ruffle
5- pin it though to keep it safe.

Cut a small felt circle.
Hot glue the flower to the necklace, glue the piece of felt on top.
You are done!

    Hi Joy,
    I love your blog! Could you tell me how long the strips of fabric need to be? I am assuming 1 1/2 inches wide but didn’t see a measurement for the length, unless I’m just reading over it!

    Great tutorial!

      Hi Amanda, actually this scan be any length you want, that is why I didn’t set an exact length, what I did was measure a strip of fabric around my neck and see how it looked at different lengths then decided to keep it at 27″ – Hope that helps =]

    This is really cute, I can’t wait to try it- how did you finish it off though? Like, where did you close your necklace?

      Joy says:

      I finish the necklace in the exact point I wanted the flower to be so I could cover the seam with the flower and to finish it I just sew both ends together.
