Make Your Own Bow & Bead Neckpiece: DIY

Hi sweeties!

As you all know, my DIYs are mostly of earrings. But a few days back a very dear one from IMBB asked me to do some DIYs on bracelets and neckpieces too as she is not much into junk earrings. So this one is for her Β πŸ™‚ bracelets will follow, enjoy this one for the time being, I was always fascinated by the bow style, a pretty bow could make any drab dress look cool in an instant! I used to marvel at my mum’s amazing stitching abilities during childhood ( I still do!). All our dresses were made by her and she adorned each dress with home made bows, laces and frills. Today, I have tried to make a neckpiece with bows although I totally suck at stitching. All you would need for this are:

1. Scraps of fabric ( I used the leftover fabric from the dress my mum made for me), make sure you use bright colors.
2. Beads of your choice. I have used black as I wanted the bows to do all the talking.
3. Thread
4. Needle
5. Patience .

Step 1: Cut out two rectangles from any two fabric of different colors. One should be smaller than the other.

Step 2: Fold one piece into half. The brighter side of the print should be inside.
Step 3:Β Start sewing up the sides.

Step 4: Continue the sewing until you form a cylindrical pocket sort of thing.

Step 5: It should look like this.

Step6: Now hold the ends and roll the β€œpocket” inside. In this way, the brighter side will now be out and your stitches would be hidden.

Step7: Roll the end and sew it up too.

Step 8: You should have a rectangle like this!

Step 9: Pinch the centre of the rectangle like so.

Step 10: Use a bright colored thread and start wrapping up the centre tightly. Tie a knot once you think it is thick enough.

Step 11: It should look like this.

Step 12: Repeat the steps for the other fabric and make a bow smaller than the first one.

Step 13: Measure an appropriate length of thread( as long as you wish your neckpiece to be) and start srtinging in the beads.

Step 14: Bead in till you reach more than half of the thread.
