I've come to the conclusion that I am partial to making D.I.Y. necklaces. Hope you enjoy this one!
Leather, embroidery thread, feathers, leather cord.
*tip* look for bags of scrap leather at your local craft store! It's always a lot cheaper and has some great quality pieces.
Plus, craft glue, needle & scissors.
First, cut two strips of 4x1 inch leather. Then, make a pattern with thread on the top of one piece of leather. I did a simple stitch all the way around and a criss cross pattern in the middle. After that, you want to attach your leather strand or chain by gluing it on the back of your leather strip. Next, you'll attach the feathers to the back piece of leather by covering the back piece with glue and lay out your feathers in the pattern you want. Then, apply another layer to the back of your front piece of leather and secure both leather strips together.
Today has been full of last minute shopping, coffee runs, ugly Christmas sweater parties, and spending time with the ones we love the most. Hope your Christmas Eve Eve is perfect.
