Changeable Necklaces

This tutorial gave me inspiration for making braided upcycled t-shirt necklaces.  You basically braid, and braid, and braid some more until you have a long rope.  You loosely wrap it around your neck until you get the length and layers you want, secure it, add a scrap of the same shirt to cover your stitches, and voila, you have a fabulous necklace!

So far I've made a grey one, a white one and a brown one.  Basic, easy colors.  Now comes the fun part, making pins/broaches to pin on to the necklace.  Here are some shots of some fabric or ribbon flowers I've made.  Enjoy!


  1. This is soooo pretty!
    I love the colors your chose.

  2. this is so perfect! brilliant idea and great interchangeables (is that a word)?
