Well, look at how it grew up!
We were heading to a rodeo and the theme was Tough Enough To Wear Pink. Well, my mom is a breast cancer survivor, so she brought over pink fabric for all of us to wear.
D used the friendship bracelet method on three strips of fabric to make her hat decoration. (Her strips were about 1.5 inches thick and 2 yards long.)
I turned mine into a scarf/necklace. We used thicker strips of fabric, probably 5 inches each.
Then today I was at an event and I saw a bundle of string that was for balloons. I thought, huh, that would make a totally cute necklace if it was twisted.
I took kite string.
And put the kiddos to work.
I used two yards lengths. I separated my two oldest kids about two yards apart and sent little L wrapping the string around their hands. See how their hands are held up? We went 15 times, so that total there was 30 strings. Then D and I started twisting. I wanted it to be really tight. Then I followed the steps just like in the post. And WAh LA new necklace that looks amazing but it is worry-free*!
Dress it up and be oh so chic.
Here is the reason why the pics were taken inside:
I was getting blown away. (I was holding my shirt down so I didn't look like I had wings.)
*OK, what is worry-free jewelry? Have you ever had a kid break your string of beads? Have you ever had a kid gnaw on your costume jewelry and you wonder what are they ingesting? Have you ever broken your necklace yourself because you were being a mom? Or being active? Worry-Free Jewelry is an answer to those woes. Easy to make, and easy to fix. (And usually cheap).
