project and photography by Tanya Collier
A pretty way to carry your favourite Liberty fabric with you everywhere, and the perfect project for your Liberty off cuts.
you will need
+ mini hoop necklace kit – available from dandelyne
+ Liberty Tana Lawn in Betsy P – find it here
+ embroidery thread to match
+ embroidery needle
+ glue & brush
Move the hoop over the fabric to help choose which section you would like to feature in your necklace
Embellish using embroidery thread. We’ve chosen the red flower as a focal point and used a simple satin stitch. Keep the thread at the back as minimal and tidy as possible.
Place the hoop over your miniature artwork and use a pencil to trace around the outside of the hoop.
Cut approx. 1cm around the pencil line.
Flip the fabric over so that the wrong side is facing upward and place the small disc in the centre of the fabric
Snip into the fabric around the circle and use glue to secure the fabric to the disc. Check the front as you go to ensure it is smooth.
Turn the disc right side up and place the hoop over your creation. Tighten the bolt at the top of the hoop to secure the disc.
Turn the hoop over and use glue to attach the larger wooden disc to finish
Allow to dry and your new necklace is ready to wear!
