Twisted Necklaces

SO MANY NECKLACES!!!!

After showing my own Fabric Flower Necklace I had a hand full of friends ask for me to make them their own.  So once I took in their fabric orders I got busy twisting!

The group of girls (minus another black and white one I have yet to make).


If I named my necklaces I would have to call this one Sweet Tart.  I just think it screams sweet with the little twist of Polka dots on the blue!


I was skeptical about my friends color selection for this necklace but the blue and orange with a hint of yellow turned out great.  Never question the customer right?

This is a redo of my first Fabric Flower Necklace.

This one I'll be making a few more of!  One for myself and one for another friend.  Seriously I like how it could go with a class black dress to spice it up.  I see this one as probably the most anthro-ish.


***
I have loved making these!  Oh and let me tell you... spend the few extra dollars on a dual heat glue gun!!!  Your fingers will SERIOUSLY thank you.  Honestly the colder heat still melted the glue it stuck just as well but when it got on my fingers it didn't burn my fingerprints off!


So what do you guys think?  Which is your favorite color combo or what would you do?

  6. These are so cute! I've had a mental image of pretty much this exact thing in my craft to-do list, so I'm glad to see that they come out so adorable! I love the blue and green (or is it blue and yellow? I can't really tell) necklace--those colors are beautiful. I'm your newest follower!

    I love the blue & pink and I think "Sweet Tart" is the perfect name for it! And I totally agree on the low temp glue gun. I have two - one low and one high and I almost always use the low temp.

    All of these necklaces are so pretty! I like your idea of using felt to glue the flowers down because I hate when they flap around or twist. Thanks for sharing and I'll be following your blog.
