So, here's a quick project with really cute results! I've been enjoying collecting images on Pinterest, and when a tutorial for this necklace came up one day, I knew I had to make one.
Anna Maria Horner's voile was going to be the perfect fabric for the necklace. It's thin, lightweight and gathers up easily. I had some bits left over from last years scarf project and you only need about a 2.5" x 18" piece for the necklace. You can find the tutorial here. I may have to trim it up every once in a while when the edges fray too much, but I don't mind!
My daughter and I have also dug out some of the crochet things. I'm teaching her how to crochet and I finished up some old projects that I started a long time ago! I made the cute little turtle for my youngest son... he calls every animal a "turtle" so it was fitting to make him a little one of his own. The pattern is from a book called "Amigurumi World" by Ana Paula Rimoli. She has a super cute blog with all sorts of cute crocheted things.
Hope you have a great day!
