necklace tutorial

I usually don't post tutorials, but this is such a simple necklace, I thought I'd share the few steps it takes to make it! Anyone can do it.:) I have made many fabric covered bead necklaces lately so my sister asked if I couldn't do ruffles instead of beads... why not? Here are are things you'll need:
Old t-shirt (any material would work)
needle and thread
That's all you need.
First cut a very long strip of fabric, mine was about 65" long.

Tie a knot about 12" from the end.

Grab your needle and thread, make a few stitches down the center and ruffle the fabric.

Keep repeating the knots and ruffles until you've got about 12" left on the other end.

There you have it!

Ruffle necklace

The possibilities are endless!;) My first attempt at this particular necklace and wow I think a yellow or green one would look fabulous..I'm gone to the fabric store in case you can't find me. haha.. A thank you to Rosie Haberl for sharing this idea! I guess this one should be hers..or not.;)
