this little creation was kind of an accident... my 7yr old daughter decided it would be a super cute idea to cut the sleeves off of her little gray cropped hoodie... so i was like 'why not, it could look pretty rock N roll'
i was on the phone with one of my best friends in CA while i was re-styling and started absent-mindedly cutting the sleeves... and looping them together... and a fabulous necklace just appeared! (LOVE when that happens!)
apparently i love to cut sleeves off of things because when i looked in my stash i had quite a few...
cut strips across
now you have little jersey rings...
interlock them like this
pull the top one through the hole and to the left
pull tight and you have a little knot
repeat and always pull your knots in the same direction
make as many strands as you like in different lengths and tie them together through the loops with a scrap
(yes that is my stupid shadow in the pic... i am a terrible photographer!)

'um... Cora i need to see the necklace..'
'why is your face so grouchy? aren't models supposed to smile?'
'i guess not'
"models awe suppose to be seewious!"
'please smile for mommy, just once...please!"
and then i realize she has peanut butter & jelly on her face... nice
at least i got a smile...
here is the first one...
so fun together...
i probably won't see the orange one again... Cora wore it the rest of the day.
