I just Made this Cute Bib Necklace Using the Bigz Shot
I just made this necklace using the Bigz Shot and the #2 Circle Die. Please, excuse the photo (I used the cell phone). I used two types of fabrics: organza and satin. I used a lighter to melt the edges of my circle in order to prevent fraying. It is important to use synthetic fabrics and not natural fabric (natural fabric will burn). I also keep a big bowl of water around when I am working with the lighter, just in case my fabric catches on fire. Finally, I had some jewelry from the 90s that I re purposed in this necklace. You could attach the "bib" part of the necklace to pearls, chain and or even a ribbon. I have done all three. I wanted this one a little differently so I attached it to a chain. It was super easy...the step that takes the longest is the melting of the edges. You could also make hair accessories using the Bigz Shot and #2 Circle Die.
