Sweet & simple fiber necklace: an Envelope of doom update.

You are going to love the latest project - our first using one of the original Supersecret Stashbust items from Heather at Dollar Store Crafts.

Back in May, I made some stuff with this yarn:

But there was lots of it left over. So I crafted it forward to a few of our craftestants in the Envelope of Doom challenge. Now Neccie of Neccie's Creations has created something awesome and simple and gorgeous. And you won't need anything but ribbon and novelty yarn.

I'm sorry this pic is teeny, it doesn't do it justice! If you go to her post you can click to see more detail - she made a multi-strand necklace, then tied little ribbon bows at intervals. Highly adorable!

You won't believe how simple to make. I can envision all kinds of variations. Neccie, I totally adore your beautiful fiber necklace. I can't wait to make this for myself!

(Added later.) I made one! I wanted to be able to show you a close-up of her idea.

I didn't have any black ribbon, so mine is done with green and white bows. I prefer her black version, it's more elegant...but I kinda love mine, too! Now I want to look for other interesting yarns to make some variations.

It would also be a great way to hang a complimentary pendant. Thanks, Neccie, cool project!

  1. I do like your too M. A pendent would look nice. I have some more yarn I might try something with that idea.
