Necklace Redo Series #6

Well the end is here.  Sniff, sniff. This is the final Necklace Redo.  Not sure if I saved the best for last or not....I'm thinking they are all my favs!!
Supplies:
$2 Goodwill necklace
2 coordinating fabrics
Buttons
Pinky Shears
Needle and thread
Hot glue gun(not in pic)
Lids for tracing
Bracelet, to be used as an extender(I used one that I don't ever wear!)
Felt

Started by tracing 10 circles out of my floral fabric and 20 circles out of my polka dot fabric. 

Then cut, cut, cut!  With the pinky shears.  I made 3 flowers...one floral, and two smaller polka dot ones.


Then stacked the circles on top of each other.  I made these flowers based upon a flower pin/hair clip my mother saw in a local gift shop.  After showing her, I didn't do enough layers and she said that I should have added smaller circles....which might have been good to know....I was doing what she had said!!  So this flower needs to be tweaked but the way I did it still turned out great. 

Sorry it's blurry!  Then with needle and thread made some stitches in the middle to have a gathered look.



Took the button and sewed it the the middle.

Then made my 2 polka dot flowers.

Got out the trusty hot glue gun and glued the flowers to the side of the necklace.

Then I cut felt circles and glued them on to have a more finished look and add some sturdiness.  I was going to use plain navy fabric but thought felt would be better.  Attached the bracelet.



Wallah!!! 

Stay tuned for next Thursday....I'll do a recap and I have a surprise up my sleeve!!
But wait there's more!!
