DIY: Fabric necklace, minimal chic

2014-11-13 09.10.08First of all, sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, I took them yesterday night, without daylight… So, this is said. This DIY requires patience and not much material!

You need:

  • 5m of about 2cm wide fabric yarn (indeed you chose the color you want). At this time of the year, there is a large offer for packaging yarn!
  • 4 transparent pearls (or other pearls, as you wish) and 6 “crushable” pearls
  • about 50cm thin metallic cable
  • thin transparent plastic yarn and a needle
  • a clasp
  • a pair of pliers

How to:


Fold the fabric yarn in the middle (picture 1). Then fork successively the two parts of the yarn on each other (pictures 2 and 3), repeat until the end of the yarn! Afterwards, sew the folded yarn with the thin plastic yarn and the needle.


Secure the ends of your construction by sewing it. Cut the metallic cable in two parts. Make a tiny loop at one end of one metallic cable piece, secure with by crushing a crushable pearl. Sew this loop to the end of the fabric yarn. Thread the transparent pearls on the cable, secure them with an other crushed pearl. Repeat with the second piece of cable for the other end of folded fabric yarn.

3Spot the length you want the necklace to be by folding the cable pieces. Thread a crushable pearl and then the clasp. Secure. Create a loop at the end of the other cable piece, secure with a crushed pearl.
