How to make your own necklace using material (cheap leather in this case)

leave a comment »

Hello, I came across this amazing site with really weird things on…like how to make your own super nintendo phone… i know … and came across this and thought I’d share it. It’s a really easy, simple and cost effective way of making your own chain…that’s if you have the time, and the colour combinations are limitless! I’ll go to the markets next week and pick up fabric and make one of these badboys. If anyone does make one let me know and i’ll post pics up.

Step 1: Draw shape on the back of your material and cut out.

Step 1. Size can be what ever size you want. Example here is 2cm in width.

Step 2. When you have as many pieces as you want (this case 36) start to think them together as shown in picture below.

Step 2. Start to link them, no need to sew them together.

Step 3. Once you are happy with the length etc sew the last piece and first piece together with a small stitch.

Just a small stitch to keep it all together.

Now for my responsible adult part. Please be careful when cutting the fabric as it’s time consuming and if you’re liek em and get bored quickly you will rush…so don’t! do it whilst watching the Bill or something. Also this example was shown using a leather like material, some cheap stuff. I assumed the material will need to be quite thick so it all stays in place. Not sure cotton will work. UMMM and i think that is it. Enjoy
