Make it Monday: DIY Bib Necklace with Mod Podge

Happy Monday! Hope you had an awesome weekend. Did you happen to do any crafting over the weekend, or discover a new craft to create? This weekend I did discover a very chic and creative project. Check out this DIY Bib Necklace, made with fabric Mod Podge. Stacie from Stars for Streetlights designed this necklace. Isn’t it so cute? I love seeing crafts that can be worn. Bib necklaces are very on trend right now and can be worn with a basic top or dress, to add a little pizazz. As you can see Stacie paired her necklace with a basic denim top. It is a great accessory to add to your wardrobe, and best of all you can make it yourself. Below you will find the supplies needed for this project, and the first few steps on how to create this.

You need:
Fabric Mod Podge
-Fabric
-Sewing Machine
-Silk flowers
-Ribbon
-Brush to spread Mod Podge
-Needle & Thread
-Beads, sequins, etc.

Step 1: First you need to take your silk flowers and tear them off their stems. I used similar colors, but you can always use a variety of colors to make a more vibrant necklace.

Next, you trace the outline of your necklace base on the fabric. Make sure you have 2 layers of fabric because you will sew them together. Stitch around your outline leaving two little spots on the sides where your ribbon will go.

Flip your sewn shape inside out and stitch the ribbons inside the little bib. I took my iron and ironed the shape flat, I think it just makes it more flat and crisp.
