The Perfect Little Gift

Disclaimer…Family and friends stop…look away now… for maybe one of you might be gifted what I am about to show. So, if you choose to continue on please act surprised when you open you lovely little box!

Well I had a few hours last night after the kiddos went to bed to work on my pile of gifts that I need to make.

I have seen some really cute fabric necklaces at Anthropologie and online. So, I grabed some old t-shirts and a string of leftover Marty Gra beads and got to work.

Here is my first finished project. I am planning on making a few more in some deep eggplant colors. Just the perfect gift for my girlfriends and a few lucky family members.

I really like how the little buds turned out. I created these using strips of fabric from the leftover shirts.

And for the black casing I used some of Hannah's old stretch black tights. What I really like, and did not expect, was the slight bit of purple you can see from the beads every now and then when the light hits just right.

Head on over to Finding Fabulous - The Shabby Nest and Todays Creative Blog for some more great ideas!
